Air Max 1: The Royalty of Nike Sneakers Turns 27 Today
Ready to trade in your winter boots for some fun warm-weather footwear? Sporty ensembles made a noteworthy appearance in the spring/summer runway shows, with sneakers playing a prominent role in the Chanel Couture show. Nike's newest limited-edition kicks couldn't have landed with better timing. Today marks 27 years of the brand's legendary Air Max 1 sneaker, and Nike has released a special-edition pair of kicks in honor of "Air Max Day" with new color options and "3.26" emblazoned at the heel to add to its decades-long collection. A game changer in the athletic industry, the Air Max was designed by Nike architect Tinker Hatfield, and its main feature is the revolutionary air cushioning in the sole—which we say is perfect for that extra spring in your step.
