The Japanese boys are at it again. Many people remember and still seek out the various atmos Nike Air Max 1 collaborations of years past. There is the og safari look of 2003, animal print of 2006, and blue/black elephant print in 2007 that are all grail status for various Nike collectors worldwide. Looking at that lexicon its not surprise that atmos’ latest Nike collaborations are not only Air Max 1s but also just as loud as their predecessors. This time atmos is combining two of today’s hottest trends in streetwear, camo and animal print, to dress the model and do so on two separate pairs scheduled for release. The first pair is a primarily army camo pair that features the green and black camo contrasted with a black shiny snakeskin material for the toebox and upper quarter sitting atop a white midsole and black outsole. The pair is loud and sure to turn heads but in my opinion calm compared to the second from the pack. That pair features a desert camo print on the quarter and toebox with a contrasting leopard print in what appears to be a horsehair like material for the rest of the shoe other than the same white midsole/black outsole combo. History would tell us that the shoes will more than likely feature some sort of branded insoles as well. Fans of muted style need not apply for these neck breakers. Release information is not yet concrete but these will have tons of hype surrounding them when they drop. Are you all in for the trend mixing Japanese duo? Take a look at the below pics and let me know your thoughts!

 

Spring is in full force and with it all the retro runners come out in full force. This particular offering from Nike Sportswear is a step up from the normal Air Max 1 we are used to seeing. Featuring an all black upper of both premium leather and plush suede this one is an easy rock with some denim, khakis, or your favorite cargo shorts. What really sets them off is the hazelnut brown midsole and matching premium leather tongue tag and logo hit on the rear. A white swoosh and top eyelet complete the simple premium look. Tuxedos for the feet? Why not? We’ve been seeing these previewed for quite sometime but they are scheduled to release at NSW retailers soon.

 

 

We are well into the new year and the folks in Beaverton are on an absolute tear. Part of that tear is this new Air Max 1 that is said to be part of a Nike Track & Field Collection. This collection is inspired by and paying tribute to Athletics West & Steve Prefontaine. Featuring a simple two tone color blocking of black and reflective 3M material these are perfect for the spring rainy season approaching in many locales. No exact release date is known but comment below if these are a cop for you!

Today’s kicks: Nike Air Max 1 black/scuba blue

Today we take a look at a great Air Max 1 colorway that DROPPED this spring. I was going through a bunch of random blogs last night and came across this one that I had loved when I first saw it but forgotten so I figured I would publish a reminder for all of us. The shoe features a canvas upper in a honeycomb yellow with a white midsole. The thing that really makes this shoe pop in my opinion is the blue spark outsole. The colors seem like an odd pairing but somehow just work. They are perfect with a pair of camo shorts and a tee or some dark denim going into fall. Definitely wish I would have added these to the catalog back in April. They are still floating around for just above retail at places like Flight Club.
