The Nike Air Max 1 LHM is available in men’s sizes which range from 4 to 13. The shoe has a lace-up closure that gives the footwear an adjustable fit.
The Nike Air Max 1 LHM is surprisingly easy to style. Rock your low-top footwear with skinny jeans or joggers. Or, pair it with a pair of selvedge denim and throw a slim jacket on top.
The Nike Air Max 1 LHM has a canvas upper while the mudguard (the pinstripe design) is made of Hyperfuse. The Hyperfuse technology fuses three layers of material by utilizing a hot-melt process, creating a durable shoe with enhanced breathability. It also eliminates stitching for a clean finish.
The Nike Air Max 1 LHM (Latino Heritage Month) is based on the silhouette of Tinker Hatfield’s design, the iconic Air Max 1. The original model debuted in 1987 and is best known for being the first shoe to feature Nike’s visible air technology. It almost didn’t see production since the marketing department at Nike doubted the tech would take off but the shoe proved them wrong. In fact, it is now listed as one of the greatest sneakers of all time.
The classic 1987 shoe took its inspiration from the Le Centres George Pompidou in Paris which had a famous “inside-out” design. From this, Hatfield had the idea of taking the hidden air unit and making it part of the Air Max’s visual aesthetics.
The classic had a mesh and suede upper and was first released in a white, red, and grey combination colorway. It has since been released in various other colorways and in versions featuring a leather upper. The original also used far different midsole and outsole materials than the ones we see today, but since the foam then was prone to crumble, Nike upgraded the materials in 1992 to far more durable ones.
The Nike Air Max 1 LHM is part of Nike’s limited release “Los Primeros” Pack that debuted in September of 2017 in celebration of Latino Heritage Month. The pack is comprised of collaborations of the Air Max 1, Air Jordan 1, Cortez, and Air Force 1 with local street artists from Latin America.
The Air Max 1 LHM model was designed by Wasafu, a Chilean graffiti artist. The style is inspired by graffiti as well as by the body paint of the nomadic Ona tribe of Patagonia.
- The Nike Air Max 1 LHM model by Wasafu is named “Nomad.”
- The shoe debuted on September 15, 2017, at a price of $150.
