Smile and be happy, the miserable days of winter are slowly coming to an end. Just as the sun finally shows up here in the UK, so to does Nike’s most colourful collection of 2019. That’s right, after month’s of speculation you’ll soon be able to cop the Air Max 1 ‘Have A Nike Day Purple Black’. This is one of several funky designs to launch this week including an Air Max 270 and Air Max 95!
When you look back at the greatest Air Max 1s of 2018, it’s always the colourful renditions that come to mind. Take for example, the Air Max 1 ‘Watermelon’ or Patta’s stripe-heavy collaboration. It seems when it comes to the AM1, louder is most certainly better. Thankfully, the ‘Have A Nike Day‘ Pack is about as loud as it gets!
A vibrant use of shades feature to ultra premium uppers. It’s not all about attitude over refinement. In fact, that thick suede wouldn’t look out of place on a NikeLAB release. Of course, it’s still a homage to the old school what with the mesh toe box and chunky Air Unit.
To complete the look, this exclusive features an embroidered smiley face at the heel. This same 90s-esque icon makes an appearance in the form of a metal lace dubre.
