Who said a dog was just man’s best friend? Nike honors companionship between woman and dog with this upcoming Nike Air Max 1 release inspired by the unbreakable bond, decorating the silhouette with plenty of cues dedicated to the adorable pet.
First, the fender and tongue feature a bandana-like pattern and material – a nod to the handkerchiefs dogs wear around their necks. The bright green interior and grassy soles represent the tennis balls and grassy plains that puppies love to play on, while the natural tones reflect the color of pastoral dogs that are very common in Asia. Nike also adds furry materials on the tongue, while slightly plush textures cover the quarter and heel. The Air Max 1 “Woman’s Best Friend” also doesn’t match color blocking, with different shades comprising the right and left shoe.
While a US release date is yet to be confirmed, these are set to hit SNKRS in Asia on June 18th. We’ll keep you posted if there’s word of a US release, but it’s likely to be an Asian exclusive.
