NIKE AIR MAX 1
ART NUMBER: 314199-002
MADE ON: 2005
MADE IN: THAILAND
Right here we have a really fresh pair of Air Max’s from 2005. Taking their name after very garish paint colour used on the midsole, they were called Morning Glory. Released as part of the Powerwall pack and 3 Decades of Cushioning collection, they were limited to only 144 pairs worldwide and sold in 8 stores with special Tier 0 accounts.
At first glance they may look like simple combination of black upper and pink midsole but there’s much more to it. Take a closer look at the upper to see “Air” laser-etched in bubble letters creating unique pattern. The front of the shoe is made from premium faux snakeskin giving the trainer subtle shine. What’s more is that the toebox and heel are made from perforated suede giving them another texture.
If you thinking about getting a pair, you better start saving up as price for these beauties starts from £850 in a DS condition. But harder than getting money will be finding them in the right size, let me remind you, only 144 pairs made!
