“Mica Green” Adorns the Nike Air Max 1
Grass is always Mica greener on the AM1.
The Nike Air Max 1 is riding on the inertia of its recent Air Max Day and with the release of the iconic “Big Bubble”, the AM1 should be at the fore of people’s attention. It might stay for awhile more with the imminent arrival of this new colorway, first seen on the Dunk Low.
“Mica Green” regal the leather mudguard wrapped around the circumference of the pair. It also highlights the branding elements as seen on the profile Swooshes, also in leather, as well as the imprint on the tongue tag. Giving these parts contrast is the grey suede overlay on the top part of the upper, in addition to the white mesh base layer.
The midsole balances the color scheme in white with a clear Air Max unit in the heel for additional cushioning. Underfoot, the outsole’s real estate is shared between the titular Mica Green, white, and black. The muted combination provides the Air Max 1 with a distinctive and understated appearance overall, giving it a flexible choice for both casual attire and athletic activity.
Find them on SNKRS on 14 April with a price tag of US$150.
