When the Nike Air Max 1 made its debut back on March 26th, 1987, sneakerheads were introduced to a whole new variety of sneakers and sneaker culture that did not exist before. It was a groundbreaking sneaker model and every year, Nike celebrates the original launch of the Air Max 1 by dropping all sorts of new and old colorways. March 26th, 2017 is scheduled to mark the 30th Anniversary of the Air Max line, but special sneakers will be arriving at retailers throughout the month. Joining the Air Max Day celebrations, Jordan Brand will also drop a special Air Jordan 3 iteration designed in collaboration with atmos.
Some of the biggest releases that Nike has planned for the month of March in commemoration of Air Max Day 2017 include three original colorways of the Air Max 1, which have all been dubbed “Anniversary.” Currently, there are only two women’s-exclusive Air Max models and the Air Max Jewell, which is inspired by the Air Max Plus, will also be arriving in a new colorway for the ladies. Nike will also be dropping multiple colorways of the Air Max 90 Flyknit that incorporates Flyknit technology into the OG Air Max 90 design. Iterations of several other Air Max variations will also hit the shelves next month.
Above all, the Nike x atmos Air Max “Elephant,” which was the winner of the Nike Vote Back during Air Max Day 2016, is also making a comeback. Coincidentally, its return will coincide with that of a sneaker from Jordan Brand that is inspired by it. While the Air Max “Elephant” itself borrowed the Air Jordan 3’s distinctive elephant print motif, this upcoming collaborative iteration borrows the entire color scheme off the Air Max “Elephant.” Thus, is dressed up predominantly in Black and White with its signature elephant print visible throughout, along with Hyper Jade-colored detailing.
The Nike x atmos Air Max “Elephant” to be re-released on March 26th, 2017, which is Air Max Day 2017. Considering that this atmos x Air Jordan 3 is also a part of the Nike Air Max 1 Day Pack, it should be obvious that it will also be making its retail debut on March 26th.
