Air was nothing new to Nike when Air Max was introduced. The first shoe to feature Nike Air Max was the Air Max 1 designed by none other than Tinker Hatfield. Since its debut as cushioning in a running shoe, Air Max has made its way into all types of shoes. Though Air Max started out as just a heel unit in 1987, year after year, Nike pushed Air Max to the limits and now utilizes it mostly as a full length, 360 Max Air unit in the sole of many different models.

Safari, safari, safari, safari. While there’s no sign of the popular print on the Nike Air Max 1 PRM Pale Grey/Dark Charcoal-Laser Orange, the classic color code harkens memories on any retro runner.

Waxed laces finish off this colorway in premium fashion, available now at shopnicekicks.com for $110.
