5 Best Rare Pairs of Nike Air Max
Tinker Hatfield’s Air Max line has produced some of the dopest sneakers in the world . Everything from sports wear to kicks that should be displayed in museums have come out under Air Max. Worn by celebrities and sneakerheads alike, there generally isn’t a long wait between one hype pair of Air Max and the next. Here are some of the best rare Nike Air Max around.
Air Max 90 Duck Hunter Camo
The 90 Duck Hunter Camo were released at SPORTS LAB by Atmos in Tokyo. Made from duck camouflage suede with infrared the Nike Air logo printed on the back of the shoe pops off in red against the green camo. High white mid sole and black air pockets are present on the sides. The ever popular inclusion of camo meant every pair was copped pretty soon after release. They’re an enduring pair so they don’t see a lot of resale and the pairs that do pop up online generally have a hefty price tag.
Nike Air Max 1 Sp ‘Liquid Silver’
These sneakers sold out pretty quickly when they first dropped. They weren’t the only all metallic sneakers around but they were one of the best right off. A traditional air max one silhouette looking like part of a robot made it a must have. The silver speckled midsole and silver laces were great touches and probably a big part of why they flew off the shelves.
Atmos X Nike Air Max 1 “Elephant Print”
The limited addition air max was originally released in 2007 but is now relaunched for 2017. The Elephant Print follows the animal print trend we’ve been seeing return to popularity. While a lot of animal print releases take the ‘animal’ part to heart with earthy color palettes to reflect the print. This release shirked the trend and made something much more interesting with the swoosh and logo detailing in bright blue standing out against the black.
Nike Air Max 1 Hyperfuse “Usa” Pack
These kicks rode the wave after kanye was pictured in a pair. These Independence Day limited edition was based on American flag and sold in three different colours: navy blue, red and white. The shoe is monochromatic with mesh top and standard air max air-sole in mid heel, laces are of the same colour making it appropriate for casual attire. The American flag is also present on the tongue of the shoe. It’s not the hardest pair of kicks to find online with some popping up often enough but they always come with a hefty price tag.
Atmos X NikeID Zero
While these kicks haven’t even released at the time of writing this, their rarity is almost inevitable. The Japan exclusive release has a few things going for it that mean it will be gone pretty quick. The run is limited to 400 pairs available in Harajuku and nowhere else. The release will feature reinterpretations of the ‘Safari’ and ‘Tiger’ Air Max which previously got huge attention for Atmos. All 400 pairs are going to be copped by people who missed the boat on the originals and now want something even more exclusive.
