[Update 7 Mar 2023] Official images of the upcoming Nike Air Max 1 PRM “Baltic Blue” have arrived. Unfortunately, a release date has not been confirmed as of yet. Nonetheless, take a closer look at the pair via the top slider above and stay tuned. We’ll bring you the latest as soon as we can.

LINENike is wasting no time to push out new offerings for this new year. Barely halfway into January, we’ve seen a multitude of new silhouettes, colorways and collaborations in the pipelines, such as the upcoming new Nike Runtekk model. But perhaps, the one model that ardent sneakerheads always look forward to is the Nike Air Max 1.

With the revival of old classics such as the “Shima Shima” and “Big Bubble”, the Tinker Hatfield-designed sneaker is receiving yet another new colorway, this time with a full corduroy makeover.

The Swoosh brand replaces the traditional mesh and leather uppers with a near-clad corduroy construction, save for its midsole foam and inner lining. Coming in the form of the “Baltic Blue” colorway, much of the upper is dressed in the titular color, with the lateral Swoosh logo and tongue tab dressed in a pale tan hue.

While there’s no official release date set for this pair as of writing, you can expect the Nike Air Max 1 “Baltic Blue” to release in the coming months at a retail of US$160. Check out early images provided by Fullress as we await more details!
