Nike’s new Air Max 1 Premium “Wabi-Sabi” sneaker will be released in India on March 26, 2022 (Saturday). Scheduled to be released exclusively in Asia and South America.
Designed by Tinker Hatfield and created in 1987, the timeless Air Max 1 was born 35 years ago when Max Air technology was introduced and the world changed. This release of the Nike Women’s Air Max 1 Premium is a special “Wabi Sabi” themed pair to honor the 35th anniversary of the iconic first silhouette.
The term “Wabi-Sabi,” which originated in Taoism during the Song Dynasty (960-1279) in China, is an aesthetic theory unique to Japanese culture that perceives beauty in simplicity, quietness, imperfection, transience, and impermanence of the human world. This word, which is close to the concept of enlightenment, was born from the two nouns wabi and sabi. Wabi-Sabi” is also highly regarded overseas as one of the Japanese aesthetic senses, as is “Shibui” .
Cream canvas upper with leather, nubuck and tricot overlays in colors such as beige, mustard, khaki, olive and pink-beige, with white stitchwork in a joined style design. The “XXXV” commemorating the 35th anniversary is embroidered in Bordeaux on the heel side, a white mini swoosh on the toe side, and a cracked design on the midsole reminiscent of hydrolysis that occurs over time, giving the shoes a kintsugi-like appearance.
