From its debut in 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 has consistently been a symbol of innovation and style. The shoe brought visible Air cushioning to the world, and its influence is still felt in sneaker culture today. In recent years, Nike has revitalized classic colorways and created fresh, modern renditions designed specifically for women. As 2023’s holiday season approaches, Nike again honors this legendary model with the Nike Air Max 1 '87 LX "Light Smoke Grey," tailored exclusively for women.
This premium version of the Nike Air Max 1 boasts a plush, white corduroy base layer that is the perfect canvas for the sophisticated grey tumbled leather and suede overlays. The darker grey elegantly graces the suede on the mudguard, blending with the lighter grey found on the tumbled leather vamp, midfoot, and heel. The iconic white Swoosh acts as a crisp counterpoint, seamlessly integrating into the design while drawing attention to the shoe's legendary silhouette. The tongue tag is notably distinct, embellished with a 3D Swoosh in a sharp black hue. The heel tab, meanwhile, is adorned with a revamped Nike text design, set in a contrasting black shade that echoes previous designs such as the "Rugged Orange" colorway. This luxurious sneaker is completed with a classic white foam midsole and a durable grey rubber outsole.
The Nike Air Max 1 '87 LX Light Smoke Grey W will release Holiday 2023 through Nike and select retailers online and in-store. Coming in women’s sizing, the retail price is set at $160.
