The Nike Air Max 1 “White Black” Brings in the New Year

For years, the Air Max 1 sat on the sidelines while other Air Max models like the 90 and 97 basked in the limelight. But that all changed in 2023, as Nike decided it was time to roll out the OG Air Max again, in colorways both original and new. Lucky for us, that trend will continue into the new year, starting with the Nike Air Max 1 “White Black” in early January.

This take on the ’87 running sneaker features a white mesh base with “Pure Platinum” suede overlays on the midfoot and heel panels. Black Swoosh overlays take up real estate on the lateral and medial sides, which match the sneaker’s suede mudguards. The sockliners, as well as the embroidered Nike Air logos on the heels, are done in black, too.

Down below, the Nike Air Max 1 “White Black” boasts a crisp white foam midsole unit with visible Max Air windows in the heels. Black rubber outsole units bring it all together.

Will you be looking to grab a pair? The Nike Air Max 1 “White Black” will be available on Monday, January 1st, both in-store and online at for a retail price of $140.
