Nike Sportswear's spring footwear collection will also incude several new takes on the dependable Air Max 1 Essential.

One of several pairs likely to release this spring, this AM 1 Essential features a combination of premium suede and smooth leather building them up. A vibrant red hue is utilized throughout the premium material upper, while off-white adds the perfect amount of contrast over the Swoosh logos, tongue badge and midsole below. Creating a classic look, NSW went with a gum rubber outsole to finish these off.

The Red/Gum Nike Air Max 1 Essential is expected to hit retailers in April.
