The people have spoken and a winner has been chosen in the first Nike Air Max Vote Back.
Releasing on Air Max Day in 2017 will be the Nike Air Max 1 Atmos “Elephant”. The first time this shoe released was a decade ago in 2006 and was a highly sought after sneaker.
Flashback to 2006, the Nike Air Max 1 scene was super underground in the sneaker culture. But above all of the energy around AF1s, SBs, and Jordans, the Atmos Nike Air Max 1 was one of the defining shoes that brought much attention to what was going on in the retro Air Max and retro runner world.
All of this hype and chase for the shoes came at a time when the Nike Air Force 1 was king, Nike SB Dunks were still flipping, and Jordan retros were building up steam. It is great to see that a decade later, there is still so much enthusiasm for the shoes – a true testament to their place in sneaker history.
Sneaker nation, we got it right and voted a great sneaker as the winner of the first Vote Back by Nike.
