LAUNCHES: Nike Air Max 1 DNA CH.1 "Purple Punch"
As the second installment of the Nike DNA series, the "Purple Punch" trainer pays homage to its fellow Hatfield-designed gamechanger: The Air Huarache. The Air Max 1 came into the world four years before the Air Huarache, but the two silhouettes will forever be linked through a shared heritage. Both designs were born at the inventive hands of Tinker Hatfield. Both designs brought unprecedented innovation to the masses. And both designs have persisted for decades beyond their debut, gaining renown as unyielding expressions of craftsmanship and style.
This pack runs back the two legends, but with several subtle twists. This shoe is rooted in the past, inspired by the 1991 model. However, faithfully transplants the Huarache’s “White/Black/Purple Punch” ensemble.The designs flip the script by swapping notable colour palettes - a retro purple in this particular case. Taking after each other's classic features, the modified AM1 includes a neoprene tongue, midfoot mesh and heel overlay.
