This Nike Air Max 1 “Escape” Takes You To The Greater Outdoor

The Nike Air Max 1 has seen quite a rise in popularity over the last few years. Always a must for sneaker enthusiasts, the silhouette went through some ups and downs regarding its wider popularity. Pompously introduced during 2023’s Air Max Day in the 1986 version with a big bubble, the Tinker Hatfield-designed AM1 has been the canvas for many colorways and collaborations that made their mark in sneaker culture.

A frequently used feature is an additional embroidery around the heel tab that accompanies the signature Swoosh, like the US Flag on the “Fourth of July” Air Max 1, a Duck Pecan, the CLOT x Nike Air Max 1 “K.O.D.” SOLAR RED or the Air Max 1 “HUF” showcasing the skyline of San Francisco.


In a similar fashion, we now see Nike introduce another AM1 that continues the legacy of telling a story on the heel tab, the Nike Air Max 1 “Escape.” After seeing it circle around for a bit on the www, this absolute stunner of Air Max is about to be released. Inspired by the Nike Escape from 1984, a trail running sneaker that paved the way for the ACG line, the AM1 now celebrates the Pacific Northwest with details inspired by the greater outdoors and Mount St. Helens. Made with a blend of leather and hairy suede, the shoe has a white mesh base with black, State Blue, and Soft Grey accents and boot-inspired laces, the highlight sits at the rear, where a black embroidered forest treeline rounds off the low-top retro Nike sneaker in style.
