Nike Air Maxim 1 Red/White

Nike Air Maxim 1 Flywire Red/WhiteNike’s Flywire and Lunarfoam technolgies have made the Hyperdunk and Zoom Kobe 4 some of the lightest basketball shoes to ever hit the court. It looks like for the Fall of 2009, the classic Air Max 1 will receive a similar lightweight makeover.

The Nike Air Maxim 1 has just hit the net, the red and white colorway is reminiscent of the HOA release, but noticeably different is the Flywire in the side panel, on top of what appears to be Lunarfoam in the midsole. Now, purists may not be feeling these kicks, but like most updated retros, time helps the technology infused classics to grow on most.

Think of it as a classic 60’s Corvette with that new 620 horsepower engine under the hood, anything wrong with that?
