One of three Air Max 1 releases scheduled for Air Max Day, the Air Max 1 “Blueprint” takes a bit of a literal approach to the design concept by adding a variety of details that lay out the origin of the iconic sneaker. Designed by Tinker Hatfield and officially releasing in 1987, the Air Max 1 has served as the foundation of Nike Sportswear’s Air Max legacy and is often viewed as the “it” shoe for collectors that started the global craze in the early 2000s.
The Air Max 1 “Blueprint” sees its concept reflected in a blue colorway, with suede uppers paired up with white and sail for an attractive mix of colors. Grid patterns, common in architectural blueprints, are spotted on the Swoosh and tongue logo. A spec breakdown of the Air Max 1 appears on the insole, with the build layers stacked on top of the state of Oregon (where the Nike World Headquarters resides), then the United States, then the globe. Our favorite detail lands on the heel, where the classic Nike Air sits above a debossed planet Earth.
