Here’s everything you need to know about the brand new Nike Air Max 1 Susan Missing Link! Celebrating the release of animated feature film ‘Missing Link’, the Swoosh has teamed up with Laika – a stop motion animation studio owned by Nike co-founder Phil Knight and his son Travis Knight – for a sneaker like no other!
Taking inspiration from the movie’s main protagonist, Mr Link, the AM1 is dressed in his signature costume. Green and plaid overlays pay homage to the creature’s suit, while a midsole that’s wrapped in leather resembles his hat. To round off the eye-catching design, two leather ‘cuff links’ feature on the top two eyelets, completing the sartorial design that’s bound to turn heads this season.
If you’re wondering where the shoe’s unique name comes from, at the start of the movie, Mr Link actually introduces himself as “Susan” in an attempt to hide his identity. This has been implemented onto the tongue branding, where the word “MAX” has been crossed out and “SUSAN” has been scribbled underneath.
Whether you’re an avid sneaker collector or a fan of ‘Missing Link’, the Nike Air Max 1 Susan Missing Link is the perfect sneaker for you! A must cop for any rotation this season, we recommend that you go true to size for the perfect fit!
