Calling the Air Max 1 "essential" isn't a bold statement by any means, but the designation still feels slightly strange when officially given by Nike Sportswear to seemingly random colorways.
That's the case on this pair, which is actually "Ultra Essential" thanks to the rebuilt upper. The release ends up as one of the more versatile ones yet for this silhouette thanks to the no-frills black, black and black look.
This Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Essential can be found now at big box sneaker retailers like Finish Line.
