Whats going on with my Sneakerhead family? How have you been? What have you added to the collection recently? I most recently picked up the Nike air force 1 from the “Have a NIKE day” pack. The whole collection was actually really nice; consisting of Air force 1, Air max 270, Air max 95, Air max 97 and of course the Air max 1. Why soo many Air maxes in the pack? Because it is the first official release for “AIR MAX” month!!!
Now, what the hell is AIR MAX month you ask? Well allow me to answer that question in-depth. But before I start, quick shout out to M. Frank Rudy who created and patented the Nike Air technology we all know and love. Back to the topic at hand, the AIR MAX….The Air Max 1 was originally designed in 1987 by Tinker Hatfield and released on March 26th (AIR MAX Day). Now with that nugget of info you would think “so Nike has been celebrating AIR MAX month forever”. In actuality, 2019 will make for ONLY the 5th year that the AIR MAX is being celebrated. It started back in 2014 as a marketing ploy by Nike to build hype around not only old Air Maxes, but to draw attention to new AIR MAX releases. I’m not knocking it and I’m not mad at it, but I have to call it how I see it. I could be wrong, feel free to comment or message me. If you have a better explanation I’d love to hear it. It started off as AIR MAX DAY being celebrated on 3/26….then you had Sneakerheads and enthusiasts alike flexing AIR MAX kicks ALL month to show their love and appreciation. We all know how fast things get hyped and blown up; next thing you know (with a little push from Nike) we had a full-blown month dedicated to the AIR MAX. It’s actually very ingenious by Nike to capitalize on the wave. So in short, AIR MAX month is a month of appreciation for Nike’s collection of runners that all possess the AIR MAX technology.
So here we are in our 5th year of celebrating one of the oldest and most beloved kicks in the shoe community the “AIR MAX”. If you noticed I haven’t been too specific because there are soooo many air maxes it would take all day to acknowledge and show you all of them. Instead we’re going to acknowledge all of the AIR MAX releases happening this month and even mention a few AIR MAX events happening this month.
