Air Max 1 "Blueprint"
In a literal sense, the Air Max 1, the first Nike with a visible Air Unit, provided the blueprint for sneaker design, style, and culture when it dropped in 1987. This Air Max Day, the “Blueprint” Air Max 1 honors how far the style has come. Brush-off leather on the Swoosh reveals a technical drawing — a blueprint, if you will — and a globe graphic on the heel illustrates the sneaker’s journey to a worldwide phenomenon. Reflective hits, tumbled leather, and a glow-in-the-dark outsole complete this map to Air Max excellence.
