Editor’s notes: It’s a good year to be a fan of the Nike Air Max 1 – naturally, since it’s the silhouette’s 25th anniversary. Despite the monumental milestone, it doesn’t look like Nike is making too much of a fuss over the shoe’s quarter-century anniversary.

Sure, there were a handful of special releases that kept fans from going hungry, but given the model’s importance to the Air Max lineage. Without the Air Max 1, we would be without all those that followed.

Outside of this year’s Air Max Day celebrations, there haven’t been too many general releases worth mentioning. Instead, it seems the Swoosh’s strategy is to let its collaborative partners handle the silhouette, providing unique remixes that highlight how the sneaker’s style varies. between alternating levels of taste.

Perhaps AM1’s most exciting trio, or at least the most memorable of the year, was Concepts’ multi-pattern finishes.

Now, Nike reconnects with Kasina to deliver the story of an age-old Korean cultural custom. The two-piece collection is inspired by Won-Ang ducks, a set of carved wooden ducks given to newlywed couples.

Under the title “Made To Be Together”, the project sees the AM1 transformed with traditional colors and fabrications representative of good fortune.

Apparently, mismatched uppers are key to the silhouette’s success in 2022, as multicolored and multi-textured uppers are certainly desirable.
