Leaks in April revealed that Nike was working on two Air Max 1s based on the SS$4,200 Air Max 1 Lemonade. But rather than bringing it back exactly as it was, Nike concocted two refreshing takes on the sneaker. The first remake which was the Air Max 1 Limeade dropped in September. Nike’s second take, the Air Max 1 Strawberry Lemonade, will drop on November 12.
Just like the 2006 Air Max 1, the sneaker will get a fruity-inspired color scheme and retro Air script all across the midfoot. As its namesake suggests, the sneakers will come in light pink with laces that add a touch of soft yellow — a nod to the OG sneaker.
Nike has also given the sneaker a reworked tongue and insole, each one bearing graphics of the strawberries and lemons that inspired the colorway. Topping it off are hits of 3M all across the midfoot panel, making sure that these special Air Max 1s don’t go unnoticed.
The Air Max 1 Strawberry Lemonade drops on November 12.
