NIKE REINVENT AN OG FOR NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
Nike are celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month by recreating an OG Air Max 1. The DNA of the 1987 model is immediately apparent – with the grey, red and white details exactly where you’d expect them to be – but this iteration sees the OG remixed into a new beast. The red guarding has been striated with lines that resemble the stitched mouth of a sugary calavera, while the grey overlays feature sharp geometric shapes.
The release has been named ‘Los Primeros’ (Spanish for ‘The First’). Though it hasn’t been billed as a colab, it does seem to have been overseen by graphic artist Wasafu, whose name can be found on the heel.
The Nike Air Max 1 ‘Los Primeros’ will be available on September 27 from select Nike accounts. via SneakerFreaker.com
