It’s been a while that we’ve seen such an abundance of releases for the iconic Nike Air Max 1 silhouette but I guess 2021 brings with it hope. On January 22nd, the Nike Air Max 1 LV8 “Obsidian” is releasing for $140. This colorway follows after the releases of Air Max 1 “Dark Teal Green” and “Martian Sunrise”.

It’s been more than 30 years since the first Nike Air Max 1 was released in all its glory. The original Air Max 1 brought with it the Max Air technology that revolutionized an entire line of product offerings for the sportswear giant. Designed by none other than Tinker Hatfield, the Nike Air Max 1 has been a staple in any sneakerhead’s closet for its durability, versatility, and its history.

Nike Air Max 1 LV8 “Obsidian” – Details


If you’re wondering what LV8 means, it stands for “elevate” which means that your Air Max 1 will have a slightly thicker sole giving you that elevated feel and appearance.

This Air Max 1 arrives in a navy tone that is found along the entire mudguard, Swoosh, eye stay, and branding. The Obsidian colorway contrasts with the White and Grey leather overlays on the upper. To finish off the design, we have the white laces atop the grey upper and the Nike Air Bubble is wrapped in the Obsidian colorway as well.

Nike Air Max 1 LV8 “Obsidian” – Resale Price

The resale prices for the Obsidian started off strong at $300 per pair but since then have taken a dip. This could be due to the availability of other Air Max 1 colorways on the market but that doesn’t mean that you’re late to the party.

If we analyze the current Bid and Ask prices, it seems that the resale price of the Nike Air Max 1 LV8 “Obsidian” is between $200-$210. With a retail price of $140, the profit margins aren’t high but if you’re able to get a hold of multiple pairs then you’re in luck.
