Nike Air Max 90 Donna

The lineage of the Air Max 1 is Nike Air Max 95 Womens as rich as any of the other groundbreaking stars in Nike’s storied catalog. Thinking about how the Air Max 1 redefined not just the design of contemporary sneakers but Nike’s own commitment to technology and innovation, perhaps the Air Max 1 occupies even more rarefied air. But while Nike’s own design teams (including sneaker deity and father of Air Max himself, Tinker Hatfield) are the ones bringing life to Nike Air Max Command Donna the game-changing ideas emerging out of the Beaverton campus, there’s something to be said about the not-so-secret society that has so thoroughly embraced, enhanced, and energized Nike’s designs, especially the Air Max 1. The input from Nike’s community of fanatics, retailers, and collectors hasn’t simply helped influence new Air Max 1 colorways. Rather, it’s the community that has directly inspired some of the most important Nike Air Vapormax Mujer and lusted after releases from across Nike’s archive of Air Max.

In an homage to those who have helped pave the way for the Air Max 1’s continued success, and the hype that still surrounds many of the silhouette’s most visually stimulating iterations to this day, Nike continues its Air Max Day celebration with the Air Max 1 “Master.”

The Air Max 1 “Master” is a lot to take in at first glance (taking in over 30 decades of collaboration isn’t something you can do lightly). A literal fusion of several Air Max 1 retoolings and aesthetic redesigns, it draws natural comparisons to Nike’s “What The” mashup releases. The combination of a variety of different Air Max 1 editions—including the OG Air Max 1 in University Red, the perforated upper from 2005’s Kidrobot x Air Max collaboration, the Atmos Air Max 1 “Safari” “Animal Camo” Adidas Superstar Mens and “Viotech” models, and the Patta x Air Max 1 “Chlorophyll” —isn’t simply a look back at certain notable drops; the mashed up “Master” is also an examination of the unique identities that have helped keep the Air Max 1 at the top of sneaker conversations since 1987.

Don’t get it twisted: enthusiasts aren’t just antisocial guys trading in online shopping tips and sneaker survival stories over the Internet. Rather, enthusiasts encompass the designers, retailers and fans that have helped evolve and innovate on both the base features and the story of the OG Air Max 1. For radical Air Max reworks, take 2006’s “Kiss of Death” Air Max 1 NL partnership with Hong Kong-based CLOT. Virtually redesigning the silhouette from the ground up, the “East-meets-West” deconstructed design removed the sock liner and added the model’s iconic Nike Air Max 90 Donna transparent toe box—one of only three Nike designs to boast such a detail at the time.

For story, it’s hard to top the mythical Parra x Air Max 1 “Albert Heijn” model from 2005. While well-known Dutch artist Piet Parra was working on his “Amsterdam” Air Max 1, he originally designed an Air Max 1 inspired by major Dutch supermarket chain Albert Heijn. When the store rebranded and changed its color scheme before the shoe hit Asics Gel Lyte 5 Femme shelves, Nike scrapped the orange and blue design altogether. Parra ultimately crafted his hometown-inspired shoe with a burgundy, pink and blue colorway as a nod to the city’s famous Red Light District, but the “Albert Heijn” colorway remains as literally one of the rarest sneakers in existence. Passed only to “friends and family”, there are just 24 pairs of this practically priceless Air Max artifact in the Adidas NMD Womens wild.

When it comes to the Air Max 1 “Master”, both the “Kiss of Death” and “Albert Heijn” are just the tip of the iceberg. With several other legendary grails present and accounted for as well, this 30th anniversary model is a one-shoe-reminder of the tentpole drops in Air Max 1 history, stoked by urban legends and oral histories that the community itself has passed on through the decades.
