Air Max 1 Maxim

Why did they coin it the Maxim (don't people think of the magazine right away)? I have no idea. All I know is that these are definitely a fresh spin on one of the best classics.

The Nike Air Max 1 has been a classic sneaker for years now and has had a lot of time, since its inception over two decades ago, to gain favor in the eyes of sneaker aficionados. With the Nike Air Max 1 Maxim, the Air Max 1 transcends “classic” to the label of “icon”, joining the Nike Dunk, Air Max 90, Air Force 1 and Cortez. The above shoe, which is an Air Max 1 in an original colorway (featuring some buttery suede) equipped with Flywire and other tech upgrades…which is why the shoes name has been modified to the Maxim Air Max 1.

Air Jordan 1 Premier (Infrareds or Max Orange?)

There seems to be some confusion as to what the actual bright red/orange colour is named on this release. Either way, they seemed to have changed the materials completely losing its SHINE from the previous patent leather looking sample. These look to be some type of nylon/canvas.
