Celebrated on March 26th, Nike‘s Air Max Day 2022 is now upon us. Since 2014, March 26th has seen sneakerheads across the world celebrate all things Air Max.
Air Max has been one of Nike‘s most successful lines of footwear for over three decades. Its longevity and worldwide appeal is one of the reasons Nike saw it beneficial to celebrate Air Max once a year.
On Air Max Day, Nike takes the opportunity to release new Air Max models that a lucky selection can snag on the big day.
This year is the 35th anniversary of the Nike Air Max 1. Nike is marking this occasion appropriately by releasing three new Air Max 1 colourways, with each pair exclusive to a specific region.
AIR MAX 1 ‘BLUEPRINT’
Exclusive to North America, the Air Max 1 ‘Blueprint’ is fashioned with a crisp white and baby blue colour scheme. Its styled with gridded patterns atop the medial Swooshes and the tongues. It is a subtle design with an easy light blue colour scheme that will be a trainer worth celebrating.
AIR MAX 1 ‘LA VILLE-LUMIÉRE’
Exclusive to Europe, the ‘La Ville-Lumière’ translates to ‘City of Lights.’ It is a minimal design that takes inspiration from a glittering Paris through a mix of bright white and iridescent paneling on the uppers.
AIR MAX 1 ‘WABI-SABI’
Latin America’s exclusive draws inspiration from the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, this design has been put together with imperfection in mind. Mismatched coloured panels, intricate stitching, and a cracked effect on the midsole – all contribute to a beautifully busy trainer.
Each Nike Air Max 1 colourway will be available to buy on 26 March, exclusive to their respective regions.
Be sure to watch out for any new releases or updates during the buildup to Air Max Day as I’m sure more are to come.
The annual Nike Air Max Day commences on Saturday March 26th.
