For a limited time, Nike is bringing back an all time favourite with the re-release of the atmos Air Max 1, which launched on the 19th March in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Air Max.
Easily one of the most memorable Air Max designs was the premium pair Tokyo’s atmos turned out in 2007. atmos layered the Air Jordan III’s iconic elephant print onto a basic black and white, suede and leather upper set off by a jade Swoosh. Last year it was selected on Air Max Day as the design most people wanted to see return. So it does.
THE PEOPLE’S AIR
Undisputed winner of the Air Max Day 2016 Vote Back contest, the Atmos x Nike Air Max 1 returns for the very first time, complete with the much-loved “Elephant” print and the coveted “Golden Era” silhouette. Co-created by famed Japanese design house atmos, the design was originally released in 2006 and quickly became a favorite among the sneaker community.
LIMITED EDITION: ATMOS AIR MAX 1 x AIR JODAN III
In addition to the vote-back atmos Air Max 1 “Elephant,” Nike and Jordan have combined for a limited-edition double pack celebrating the connection between Hirofumi Kojima’s creations and the iconic Air Jordan III.
The pack’s Air Max 1 incorporates a an unmistakable Jumpman logo hit on the sole. Meanwhile, the Air Jordan III comes dressed in Nike’s iconic Safari print for the first time — a tribute to both the 1987 Nike Air Safari (one fourth of the ground-breaking “Air Pack”), and atmos’ 2002 gum-soled Air Max 1 design.
The atmos Air Jordan Air Max Pack releases March 19 (AEST) on Nike.com.
The Nike Air Max 1 Atmos “Elephant” is available for Aussies on Nike.com and
