Launching exclusively in Asia Pacific and Latin America as part of Nike’s 2022 Air Max Day lineup, the Nike Air Max 1 ‘Wabi-Sabi’ gets its name from the Japanese philosophy of finding beauty in an object’s flaws and imperfections. Exposed contrast stitching distinguishes the upper, featuring an off-white canvas base with a green Swoosh and a midfoot overly in pink leather. Asymmetrical color blocking in subdued shades of brown and olive is applied to the split mudguard and heel overlay, the latter accented with Nike’s playful smiley face. ‘XXXV’ is embroidered in red stitching on the lateral heel — nodding to the shoe’s 35th anniversary — while interchangeable tongue tags provide customized branding. The sneaker rides on a cream-colored midsole, finished with a crackle graphic and supported by a gum rubber outsole.
