Most slip-on silhouettes are hibernating through the wintertime but there’s no doubt that 2023 will be another big year for laceless footwear. Preparing for this, Nike revealed an upcoming slide version of its iconic Air More Uptempo silhouette. Now, a first look at a simplified version of the Air Max 1 has surfaced.
Arriving in the OG “Sport Red” color scheme, the slide has neatly converted the Air Max 1 into a stripped down form. The footbed pops in the colorway’s signature red, resting atop the sneaker’s classic visible Air unit and a white midsole. Most notably, the strap features the front portion of a Swoosh on each side, landing on a soft gray overlay that is joined by a white mesh base and red suede mudguard. At its center, the strap prominently displays a Nike Air Max tag to complete the look.
No information regarding the launch of the Nike Air Max 1 Slide has hit the net just yet. Stay tuned for an official reveal as it’s possible the new slip-on silhouette will be a part of Nike’s Air Max Day celebration next month.
In other exciting footwear news, the Air Max 1 Crepe “Soft Grey” — which just shock dropped via the SNKRS app — has been officially revealed by Nike ahead of its proper release later this month.
