It seems like everything is coming up Flyknit this summer. Nike has been all about the ultra-light construction this season, most recently adding it to the classic Air Max 90 sneaker. For its latest addition to the Flyknit family, Nike has turned to one of the most OG of its OG silhouettes, the Air Max 1.
Despite the makeover in construction material, the Flyknit Air Max 1 essentially maintains the iconic retro-leaning shape. The mudguard and outsole retain their traditional silhouette, which makes for a nice contrast to the now more breathable upper. It will be heading our way in three separate colorways: a “Racer Blue,” an “Oreo” and the incredibly retro-styled “Sport Red.”
Look out for the Nike Air Max 1 Flyknit to hit shelves later this summer.
In other Nike news, the brand just released a surprise LeBron 13.
