Among a plethora of new exciting releases this season, the new Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Moire is a unique new design which is one of the stand out silhouettes in the ever-impressive collection of Nike footwear at Mainline Menswear.
Available in a choice of two brand new colourways – “Wolf Grey” and pure white – Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Moire is a luxurious casual shoe which is perfect for the summer season.
The original Nike Air Max 1 was released in 1987 and back then it was a revolutionary shoe which contained the famed air bubble heels which have remained a characteristic of this style ever since. It made the shoes ultra-comfortable and in Nike’s own words: “It changed the sneaker world forever by making the invisible visible.”
Lightweight, good looking and also durable, Nike’s famed shoe still has all of the attributes which made it such a successful athletic shoe upon its first release all those years ago. However in its current form it is undoubtedly best suited to everyday casual wear and fashion.
Nike’s air sole unit initially appeared in Nike’s footwear around the late 70s time period, but when the Air Max 1 came along, fans could actually see the comfort they were going to experience. People had never seen a design like it and before long it became a hit with collectors and athletes alike. It paved the way for multiple re-releases in striking colours and special editions, the likes of which we still see today 28 years on.
– Lightweight synthetic leather upper with perforations, allowing durable comfort and breathability.
– Foam midsole with visible air-sole heel.
– Rubber Nike waffle outsole for traction and wear.
– Reflective swoosh for extra visibility.
– Faux leather upper with unique laser perforations that provide ventilation.
– Gum rubber panels on the toe and heel.
– Lightest Air Max to date
The two newest members of the Air Max One family boast an updated slimmed down appearance and the all-white version in particular has a minimalist overall design with an injected unit sole that is strong enough to double up as an outsole, which in turn dramatically sheds weight off the trainer to make it the lightest version of the shoe to date. With a striking pure white appearance, it very much fits in with the modern streetwear scene and those with an appetite for classic retro runners- of which Nike Air Max trainers are a prime example of.
