Crepe Nike Air Max 1s back in 2022, plus an Air Max 97 in hemp


Nike plans to bring back the “Crepe” Air Max 1 from 2004, according to a branding document viewed by Complex, reinventing the sneaker as a retro alongside a new Air Max 97 in a similar colourway and material set. According to the internal document, the shoes are slated for release in August 2022, but the window for their launch could change given the footwear industry uncertainty over release dates caused by supply chain issues.

The original Air Max 1 “Crêpe” was part of a collection that also included the Air Max 90 and the Air Burst. The sneakers were united in their use of hemp panels, neutral colors, and light blue accents. The Air Max 1 was the only shoe among them to have a spongy crepe outsole, the others sporting a more traditional gum bottom. There is no indication that the Air Max 90 or Air Burst from the 2004 series are returning.
