The newest addition is the Nike Air Max 1 “Hangul Day,” celebrating the Korean alphabet. The holiday is observed on October 9th in South Korea and January 15th in North Korea. It commemorates Hangul’s creation in the 15th century.
The iconic Air Max pioneer flaunts a pristine white mesh upper fortified by light brown suede overlays enveloping the mudguard, midfoot, and heel panels. Sail white Swooshes deliver a vintage aesthetic to the special-edition colourway. The rear fully immerses with the Korean Alphabet Day and showcases debossed Hangul characters that translate to “Nike”. Meanwhile, the “Est. 72” label on the right pair commemorates Nike’s year of establishment. These details also appear on the square hangtag. Pre-aged sail white hues engulf the PU midsole, encasing the visible Nike Air unit in the heel. The signature waffle sole caps off the autumn-ready makeover of this Air Max 1 colourway.
