Only The Air Max 97 And Air Max 1 Make The Cut
Recently, images of Nike’s ‘Have A Nike Day’ pack circulated online to much reception. Featuring liberal use of vivid pastel colours, the pack stands out from the others with instantly recognisable colour palette, along with embellishments of “Have A Nike Day” strewn all over the shoe, and embroidered on the heel with a Nike smiley.
Unfortunately, Malaysia didn’t get the original colourways, but instead, the alternate colours which feature different hues of blue, in a somewhat similar fashion to Sean Wotherspoon’s leaked colourway of the Air Max 97/1.
2 silhouettes make the cut, the Air Max 97, and the Air Max 1, of which there are plenty of nice touches and details all across the shoe. Let’s talk 97 first. The Air Max 97’s upper gets draped in a different mix of materials, employing variations of mesh, 3M, and suede on the bottom panel in ‘Indigo Storm.’ Nike Smile grills adorn the laces and ‘Have A Nike Day’ slogan line the middle portion of the upper. Velour sockliner and insoles complete the model.
The Air Max 1 is also the same story, with a different set of details. The suede is more liberally used here, and the Nike smile embroidered on the heel, and grills present on the laces. An iced out outsole finishes the silhouette, in true, distinctive fashion.
Both the 97 and 1 are available to purchase now at Nike.com with a still full size run going with prices of RM 739 and RM 579 respectively. Truly underrated, and one you definitely shouldn’t miss.
