This Nike Air Max 1 comes dressed in a Net, Deep Red, and Orange Blaze color combination. The re-release is expected to mimic the original, which will feature Beige suede on the panels along with a transparent toe box, which you can see the insoles that has pressure points of the foot that represents a Chinese medicinal theory. Following, we have Deep Red on the snakeskin Swoosh and tongue along with ostrich embellishments. Orange is also used, while a translucent outsole with an image of the foot finishes the look.
