This Nike Air Max 1 Premium employs a technique not typically seen on the signature model, blending suede from the heel into a leather toe box.

Nike is a little late to the party, fashionably late that it is. This Nike Air Max 1 Premium takes a different approach to the classic model rarely seen on the runner. This Air Max employs a blend of suede and leather that is reminiscent of one New York design heavyweight’s signature Asics. From front to back the sneaker is comprised of a grey suede upper into a white leather toe box, with accents of mesh on the ankle collar. The midsole integrates a similar method to the upper, with the heel blending from grey to a clean white speckle pattern.

Ronnie Fieg dropped these Asics Gel Lyte III "Total Eclipse" back in 2012, employing a technique that blends suede on the heel into a leather toe box.

Now we know what you’re thinking, this is totally awesome! Awesome yes, but completely original, not exactly. The Swoosh generals in Oregon have definitely been taking notes from one Ronnie Fieg. The Kith NYC founder has been employing this technique on the Asics Gel Lyte III model for some time now. Check the “Salmon Toe” and the “Total Eclipse” as your main points of reference on this one. When Nike is modeling a signature sneaker after your designs you’re clearly doing something right! Not to mention Boston’s CNCPTS is getting in on the action with their version of the Gel Lyte III drawing inspiration from the John Harvard Statue of 3 Lies, set to release later this year. We see what you did here Nike, you can’t pull any suede over these eyes.

There’s no release date on these Air Max 1 Premiums as of yet, but stay tuned for more info on these crispy AM1s.
