Sneaker Focus: Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Essential (Light Bone & Bluecap)

In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted its revolutionary visible air technology, and people were instantly blown away. The sneakers design takes inspiration from the Le Centres George Pompidou in Paris, which has the layout of a building reversed, it's completely inside-out. Tinker wanted to create a sneaker following a similar design, thus originated the visible air unit. This sent people crazy as you got more than just the feel of the Air-Sole comfort. All of a sudden they could see the technology. From that moment the Air Max 1 has been a huge hit. Becoming one of Nikes staple silhouettes attracting athletes and collectors alike, thanks to its groundbreaking technology and a wide range of collectible releases and unusual colourways  

So here we have the newest iteration of the Air Max 1 Ultra Essential sporting a Light Bone & Bluecap colour-way. The ultra essential Air Max are made up from a lightweight, canvas uppers as opposed to the typical mesh. No-sew skins provide a much more premium fit giving the wearer a breathable, comfortable fitting shoe. The phylon midsole gives the sneakers extra durability and lasting wear. Of course they are boasting the visible Air-Sole unit in resting inside the heel which provides lightweight cushioning for all day comfort.

Personally, I love this Air Max 1's aesthetic. Small grooves in the the mudguard, imitate the sands of a Zen garden, which replicate ripples in water, which could explain the light blue mudguard. The insole has a tasteful floral print using a mix of pastel colours. Even the accents of Canyon Gold on the heel and sock-liner break up the shoe cleanly with a contrasting pop of colour. These are the subtle additions that make this release stand out from the rest and make them that much more desirable.
