Kicks Flow: Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Essential - OG Colorway


We’re coming to the end of an incredible year for kicks, and one recurring theme we’ve seen a lot of in 2015, was the return of some of our OG favorites. It’s always dope to be able to cop a pair of shoes you either had back in the day, or were never able to find back then. One thing Nike is great at, is resurrecting classic shoes and dropping them again, just as fresh as they were back in the day.

With the release of silhouettes such as the Hyperfuse and the Ultra Essential, Nike have been giving some of their legendary silhouettes a 21st century makeover. The Air Max 1 Ultra Essential OG is the latest addition to that collection of modern classics.

Paying tribute to the original by adopting the very same white-grey-varsity red colorway that left its footprint on sneaker history way back in ’87, the silhouette has been slimmed down from the original Air Max 1, with the whole upper made from a single piece of material. Details such as the quarter and the swoosh are actually screen printed on, rather than made of separate sewn-on parts, while the whole sneaker sits on top of an Ultra sole.

Retailing at $120, the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Essential OG is available now from Sneaker Politics.
