Tough but still very classy. That’s what the new release of the Nike Air Max 1 Essential WMNS collection looks like. And being a shoe from the Essential collection, it is actually a rare one! Normally the shoes from the Essential collection are really classic. Just like the ones designed as the very first! Though the Nike Air Max 1 Essential – Dusty Grey & Black & Mineral has a classic settup, they still look more like Premiums because of the colors and materials Nike used.
For the Nike Air Max 1 Essential – Dusty Grey & Black & Mineral Nike used black leather with some kind of carving in it why it almost looks like it’s snake leather wich it’s not. But because of the shiney, almost metallic look it looks so much more splendour. On this shoe, it’s used on the Nike swoosh and on the small path that goes all the way around the shoe.
The rubber sole is very light blue. The mid-sole is white and in the heel you see the air-bubble in light blue as well. Further to the top you see the path of black metallic-like leather and for the rest of the shoe Nike used light blue suede and white mesh for great breathability. Unfortunately these shoes are only made for WMNS (woman) so it will only retail in tiny ladies sizes.
