New kicks.

The Nike Air Max 1 is verryyy well known. And evidently very popular, given the style warrants its own annual celebrations and song (yas Macklemore).

And now comes another milestone. The classic Nike Air Max 1 is adopting the technology behind the feather-light Flyknits to create the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit.

Aesthetically, the shoe is very similar to its classic silhouette. The difference in this creation appears in the technology. The Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit features Flyknit construction in the tongue and toe for ventilation, and closed construction in heel for support.

Basically, Nike has worked its magic and created an incredibly light piece of footwear, all while retaining what has made the Nike Air Max 1 so popular.

The Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit is available now via the SNKRS App and from July 28 at global retailers and online.
