"In the coming months, Nike will be dropping an onslaught of nike air max offerings in an effort to make the most of the last days of the silhouette’s 30th anniversary. Some will be extra decorative and holiday-themed such as its upcoming Day of the Dead and Christmas installments, while most will be that of various inline entries, one being this recently-surfaced iteration that effectively pairs together neutral and pastel hues.
Roughly 80% of its design is reliant on cleaner hues of white and “Pure Platinum”, the former of which comprises its synthetic base, leather mid-foot overlays, and midsoles, while the latter makes its presence felt across the mudguards. Save for the black Swooshes, it’s the other accents here that bring this iteration to life as as Summer-friendly hits of yellow and purple which scatter towards areas such as the eye stays, midsole molds, and treading, as well as nike factory outlet femme which stand out through the tongue branding and mid-foot windows.
‘Winterising’ well-known sneaker models has grown increasingly popular in recent years, and now it seems Nike are bolstering their legendary nike air force 1 homme for those who still want to flex when the conditions outside are less than ideal. Rejigging the High version of the omnipresent AF-1, this design rocks an uncanny resemblance to the GORE-TEX renditions that recently hit newsfeeds across the sneakersphere – minus the ‘GORE-TEX’ branding on the lateral sides.
Just like those co-branded GORE-TEX iterations, these guys sport the special outsole tread, which is expected to give you way more traction than those ‘dad joke’ memes you keep posting on social media. Other design features include the ankle strap that’s synonymous with footwearings.com, plus ‘AIR’ branding on the midsole that seems to be written in a much bolder font than normal.This release opts for a black, red and white scheme, because who doesn’t love that colour combo somewhere in their rotation – especially when it has a Swoosh on it? You can thank a certain Michael Jordan for that enduring trend.
