After a very successful ‘vote back’ campaign for Air Max Day 2016 the community crowned the 2007 Atmos Air Max 1 ‘Elephant’ as the perfect AM to resurrect. With a lot of collectors confused about the shape of the Safari AM1 released by Nike for Air Max Day 16′ fans we’re ecstatic when news broke that the moulds used for this years AM retro were to be reimagined closer to what we saw on the 2004 Urawa Dragons One.
Keeping true to it’s roots, the ‘Elephant’ Air Max 1 for this year will feature materials reminiscent of the 2007′ OG unlike the ‘hairy toebox’ on the Safari set. There’s no doubt that this has been on the radar for many since they were announced to be retro-ing last year. With the recent release of the OG Sports Red and Sport Royal selling out with lightning speed you’re going to need every chance you can get for this release.
Priced at $220 AUD you can follow the countdown on Nike.com HERE for Saturdays release. You’ll also be able to try your luck through Hype DC through their dedicated AM Day portal 9AM AEDT and 8AM through their Pitt Street Store (SYD).
