Leaked Images of Nike Air Max 1s Surface Ahead of 35th Anniversary

Luis Torres

In 1987, the game changed with the Air Max 1. Tinker Hatfield’s creation gave us a look at the Swoosh’s technology like never before with its Air unit window. Nearly three decades and a half later, the Air Max 1 continues to be an integral part of Nike’s yearly releases.

With the new year here and Air Max Day (March 26) a matter of months away, leaked images of upcoming Air Max 1 colorways have surfaced. Leaked documents of a Nike presentation viewed by Complex‘s Brendan Dunne previewed what the Swoosh has planned for the Air Max 1’s 35th anniversary.

Alongside the return of the Nike Air Max 1 Crepe “Hemp” colorway, Nike is releasing six new iterations of the AM1. Included in the leak was a premium Air Max 1 “Denim,” which will see a $20 increase compared to the other colorways. It’s also worth mentioning that Air Force 1s, Air Max 90s, and Air Max 97s have increased in price as well. The “Denim” iteration reportedly releases in September.

Other colorways in a non-atmos “Safari”-themed colorway, a women’s exclusive in white and yellow, and a commemorative colorway for Air Max Day that includes Air Max charms.

Release dates for the leaked Nike Air Max 1s have not been disclosed (aside from the Air Max Day pair). However, we could see Nike kick things off for the Air Max 1 on Air Max Day, or even sooner. We expect all colorways to release on SNKRS and select retailers throughout 2022. As always, our sneaker monitors and release day strategy will have members ready for drop day.

Stay tuned to SoleSavy for more sneaker-related news from your favorite brands, including Nike.


Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
