Echoing the Tinker Hatfield-designed silhouette’s evolution from top-of-the-line runner in 1987 to its status as a go-to casual sportswear staple at present, Nike has crafted the premium “Vachetta” take on the tried-and-true Air Max 1 design. Inspired by the idea that some things get better with age, the collection sees untreated Vachetta leather – prone to creasing, staining and darkening – applied to the silhouette’s toe box and mudguard in order to develop a rich patina and personalized look over time. Complementing the Vachetta leather is Nike’s Vac-Tech construction in mint green to the upper’s heel and quarter panels while a Vachetta-esque shade of tan appears at the midsole, outsole, and embroidered branding on both the heel and tongue. Crafted exclusively in women’s sizes, the new colour of Nike’s Air Max 1 VT “Vachetta” pack will be available soon at CONCRETE.
