A lot has changed since the release of the Air Max 1. In the three and a half decades since its inception, the line-up has evolved dramatically, as new offerings — like the Air Max 2021 — barely resemble their predecessors. But all are coming together for 2022 to help celebrate the iconic collection as it finally turns 35-years-old.
Released in Air Max’s 34th year, the air max 2021 is joining in on the fun. The diamond branding is applied in tiffany blue atop the insole much like the “XXXV” that dresses both adjacent and along the exterior side. Matching blues also tint the Air Unit, contrast stitching, and the outline of the Swoosh, while the rest of the toe leans on an array of white dots and a silver-threaded base. What’s more, the black netting of the overlays mask an underlying pattern, which somewhat resembles the beloved safari print.
