Nike is ready to start releasing plenty of their iconic models in a patriotic color palette to celebrate Independence Day. Taking a look at the Tinker Hatfield creation we see that the sneaker starts off with a predominantly white upper that has been constructed out of both mesh and leather. Contrasting red is then added on the tumbled leather overlays by the toe, the inner liner, and the branding on the heel. A Blue suede mudguard atop a White midsole and a Red, White, and Blue rubber outsole completes the USA vibe.
Select retailers already have this Air Max 1 available with a wider release expected very soon. The retail price tag is set at $120 USD.
Nike was founded in 1964 as Blue Ribbon Sports and initially operated as a distributor for the Japanese shoemaker Onitasuka Tiger (now known as Asics). It officially became Nike Inc. in 1971.The Nike swoosh was designed by Portland State University student Carolyn Davidson，The slogan “Just Do It” was inspired by serial killer Gary Gilmore, who said “let’s do it” just before he was executed by a firing squad in 1977.
