Nike is revamping another silhouette in time for Independence Day. Serving as the followup to the 2003 Air Max 1 “USA,” the Air Max 1 “Fourth of July” retains the OG colorway with a refreshing take. The model’s white mesh base is heavily contrasted with a red mudguard and trim with a blue panel swoosh, softened by tame grey overlays to remain easy on the eyes. A patriotic homage to Betsy Ross’ original American flag design can be found embroidered on the heel along with a Nike Air woven tongue patch surrounded by 13 stars to represent the original states. This edition rests on a white midsole and gold Air Max unit, finished off with a navy blue outsole.
The Nike Air Max 1 “Fourth of July” drops July 1 on Nike SNKRS for $140 USD.
