Nike Air Max 1

The Nike Air Max 1 came on the market in 1987 and was Tinker Hatfield’s first Nike Air Max design. It is the first sneaker to feature visible Max Air. Many people consider this style as the greatest sneaker in history. Since its release many versions were made, different colorways, collaborations, limited-editions, and so on. And now, there’s another must-have, the Denham version.

About The Collaboration

Denham infused the iconic sneaker with Japanese denim authenticity. Applying their denim knowledge and experience to create an original denim colorway. A true eye-candy syle. Merging sustainable denim fabrics with the traditional, artisan craft and colored textured suede, it seamlessly melds together the best of both brands.

Details Of The Sneaker

The construction of the upper features Japanese Kakuju-tsunagi Sashiko stitches, indigo checkered denim, and indigo fishbone. These fabrics are woven by the Nihon Menpu mill in Japan. They combined these fabrics with natural tanned nubuck and indigo suede. A perfect match with denim as they will age nicely together.
