Nike Air Max Day: History

Nike Air Max Day Sneakers from 2020
Nike Air Max Day Sneakers from 2020

Nike will be celebrating the annual “Air Max Day” on March 26th 2022.

This is a relatively recent celebration that commemorates the impact and continued influence of the Air Max.

Designed by an engineer from NASA, the Air Max unit came to be and was implemented on the Nike Tailwind in 1978. It was a truly revolutionary technology at the time and would change sneakers forever.

However, it wasn’t until Tinker Hatfield entered the picture that the visible Air Unit became a thing. After a trip to Paris and witnessing the region’s architecture, Hatfield got inspired and came up with the Air Max 1 in 1986.

After 35 years, Nike continues to commemorate the line as they have done so since a few years prior. Nike Air Max Day 2022 does have a few rumored releases. Let’s take a look:

Nike Air Max 1 Air Max Day 2022

  • Estimated Resell: $200
  • Release Date: Saturday, March 26th, 2022
  • Colorway: White/Neutral Grey-Metallic Silver-Black

First in, we have the Nike Air Max 1 Air Max Day 2022, a moniker we have seen before on a past Air Max Day release.

This sneaker is expected to don grey leather mudguards with matching side Swooshes. Side panels and rear tabs will seemingly don a faded dotted pattern, while black midsoles will provide a bit of contrast.

White midsoles and grey/white outsoles complete the look.

The Air Max 1 Air Max Day 2017 resells for around $215 per pair and I expect the same from this sneaker.

Nike Air Max 1 Premium Denim

  • Estimated Resell: $180
  • Release Date: Saturday, March 26th, 2022
  • Colorway: White/Neutral Grey-Metallic Silver-Black

Nike Air Max has played around with denim before and this time, they’re set to apply the material to the Nike Air Max 1!

This Air Max 1 feature a denim upper with a darker material on the side panels and lighter around the collars and bottom eye stays. A grey hue covers the side panels and toes with a small white embroidered Swoosh on the toes.

Light tan midsoles complete the look. For resale, I expect a value of around $180 per pair.

Nike Air Max 1 Safari 2022

  • Estimated Resell: $300
  • Release Date: Saturday, March 26th, 2022
  • Colorway: Stone/Grey-Olive-Sail

Nike has implemented the ‘Safari” look on multiple Air Max 1s, particularly on their collaborative Air Max 1s with atmos.

This Air Max 1 features grey zebra-like patterns on the mudguards and the collars with tan leather side panels and beige toes. Olive laces and rear tabs, sail midsoles, and grey outsoles complete the design.

Expect high resale prices for this one as Safari colorways for the Air Max 1 have always been popular.

Nike Air Max 1 Sand Blue Green

  • Estimated Resell: $230
  • Release Date: Saturday, March 26th, 2022
  • Colorway: Sand/Blue-Green-Blush

This Air Max 1 also features a unique design in a combination of beige and maroon. Maroon leather covers the mudguards and rears with blue side panels, green Swooshes, and beige toe boxes.

Sail midsoles and dark outsoles complete the look. Air Max 1 colorways, even the generic colorways, are usually profitable and I expect resale for these to be around $230.

Nike Air Max 1 Brown Beige Purple Green

  • Estimated Resell: $200
  • Release Date: 2022
  • Colorway: Brown/Beige-Purple-Green

This Air Max 1 also appears to don a mix of earthy hues with beige side panels, purple Swooshes, green mudguards, and brown hues around the toes and collars.

Sail midsoles and seemingly purple outsoles finish off the look.

Expect average resale from these sneakers.

Nike Air Max 1 Tour Yellow

  • Estimated Resell: $260
  • Release Date: 2022
  • Colorway: White/Tour Yellow-Neutral Grey-Black

Last but not least, we have the Nike Air Max 1 Tour Yellow that is set to release likely on Air Max Day.

Uppers feature pastel hues on the side panels with a neutral white base while the titular tour yellow colorway appears on the white mudguards and Swooshes. White midsoles and matching outsoles complete the look.

This colorway will likely resell for good profits because of its classic color blocking. To help you cop all the sneakers on this list, read the Hypemaster Playbook that features detailed guides regarding how to resell sneakers profitably and sustainably.
