Weekends At West: Nike Air Max 1 Premium "Elemental Gold"

Originally released in 1987 as the first shoe Nike ever created with the Air Max cushioning unit on full display, the Nike Air Max 1 hasn't lost a step over the last 30-plus years. Along with such behemoths as the Air Jordan 3, Foamposites, and now, VaporMax, the Air Max 1 is up near the top of the list when it comes to discussing Nike's most iconic pieces and innovations in design and technology.

Seen here as part of the "93 Logo" Pack, Beaverton's cooks have taken some inspiration from industrial workwear and tweaked that aesthetic for this Air Max 1 Premium. Instead of the traditional wheat found on work boots or Timbs, they've remixed that using a canvas upper and a combination of "Elemental Gold," "Mineral Yellow," black and white for a more upscale look with plenty of contrast. There's also rubberized branding on the heel borrowed from the Air Max 93 to set this pair apart from most other Air Max 1 models in existence making these a must for any collector. 

This Nike Air Max 1 Premium is only available at the shop or via phone order. Drop in and see us 147 W 72nd in Manhattan or give us a call at 212-787-8595 to grab your pair.
