MILAN AND SHANGHAI
Finally, Milan’s lilies and Shanghai’s plum blossoms are matched in delicate balance.
A bleached bronze tone, evocative of the Italian Renaissance, highlights the Milan Air Max 1 Ultra, in contrast with a saturated monochromatic red on the Shanghai version.
BOUQUET OF MAX
The Nike Sportswear Women’s City Collection comes into full bloom with six vibrant variants of the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra. The collection is influenced by distinct style capitals — London, Milan, New York, Paris, Shanghai, and Tokyo — each home to passionate running populations.
Six new Nike Air Max 1 Ultra designs feature three distinct patterns, each inspired by respresentative flowers and local heritage of two cites. The prints form individual color schemes that define each city, allowing each shoe to stand-alone. The Air Max 1 Ultra extends the Air Max family tree. It features a completely new outsole that uses less material than the original for dramatically improved flexibility and reduced weight.

Nike Air Max
Nike's revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in the late '70s. In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1
debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort—suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Nike Air Max shoes
have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking colour combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
