NIKE AIR MAX 1 ULTRA FLYKNIT
By Nic Hayman, 16 October 2016
The temperature is plummeting, which means it’s high time to get your knits out – and that goes for your feet too. Taking top spot this chilly Sneaker Sunday is the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit.
No, we’re not talking about grandma’s finest here – the weave on the Air Max 1’s all-new upper is a little more technical than knit one, purl one. The first shoe to showcase Nike’s game-changing Visible Air technology in 1987 has been reinvented with one of their more recent innovations: Flyknit. Not only does it give a featherweight feel, but the fit is as glove-like as it gets. Plus, by shedding the excess bulk, that iconic profile looks as sharp as it did in its earlier years.
This mottled 'Neutral Olive' colourway is spot on for AW16 styling and, with Nike’s water-repellent Defender treatment on board, you needn’t worry about any surprise showers. To win a pair of the Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit ahead of this week’s drop, head on over to our Instagram channel @asos_menswear.
