Nike Adds Pull-Tab Tongues to the Air Max 1

Nike Adds Pull-Tab Tongues to the Air Max 1

The Air Max 87 pulls itself together

The sneaker that revolutionized the market — The Air Max 1 —  created unprecedented hype when it first hit the market in 1987.  The buzz and its demand were like nothing the industry had ever seen before. Known for its world-first visible “Air,” the sneaker transcended the iconic brand itself, forcing knock-off and copycats left, right and center. The Air Max ’87 became Nike’s biggest drawcard and was responsible for the still flourishing Air Max series.

So it’s no surprise that the sneaker gets celebrated by Nike more often than any other. But this time around, it’s the sneaker that’s celebrating the brand.

This duo of Air Max 1’s arrive in two iconic Nike colors; Shoebox Orange and Blue Ribbon Blue. The former is s notorious today as it was when Phil Knight demanded the color to be proficient on Nike Boxes back in 1972. The Blue, however, is lesser-known and lesser-celebrated. After-all Nike only earned notoriety after changing their name to Nike from Blue Ribbon Sports in 1971. The white iteration adorns the iconic orange on the Swooshes, inside the Air unit and on the newly-added tongue tabs, with the black pair honoring Blue Ribbon Sports in the same spot.

Grab a detailed look at both celebratory Air Max 1s below, with a release to hit Nike.com over the coming weeks.
