the Oregon-based Swoosh label decided to give the Nike Air Max 1 a fresh new look by reviving the design. The look of the early 1990s is well captured by the combination of jet-black nubuck mudguards, pristine white mesh sections, and light gray leather reinforcements.
Besides that, the sidewall’s characteristic swooshes as well as the tongue flap’s branding tags all use the teal color, which is one of the primary tones in the color palette. Similar teal mesh fabrics are employed for the collar lining of this interesting Air Max 1 colorway. These collar liners, along with matching teal insoles, are highlighted by the shoe label’s branding accents in white.
In addition to this, the Tinker Hatfield layout makes a speedy detour to the year 2004, using the understated touches of purple that were seen on the women’s Air Max 90 Essential. These purple accents enhance the subtle black and gray layout of the heel counters. The typical Nike Air Swoosh branding appears on the heels.
Rounding out this “Tropical Twist” colorway is the sole unit, which features a crisp white midsole glued to the two-toned black and white outer sole unit. On the rear side, the transparent window displays the teal Air Max unit embedded in the midsole.
