Since its original debut in 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 has gone from revolutionary upstart to elder statesman, all while staying relevant in the sneaker landscape for for 27 years. Now the shoe is reinterpreted as an indirect homage to the world’s most popular sport, featuring designs inspired by the Nike Magista and Mercurial Superfly football boots. Available in both men’s and women’s sizes, the Magista editions feature the Volt theme from the debut colorway of the Flyknit infused boot, while the Mercurial designs borrow the red hue from the introductory pair. In time for 2014 FIFA World Cup, the former launches May 22nd while the latter launches on June 12th.
