Back in 2006, Nike released the ‘Powerwall’ pack, a collection of 56 different Air Max silhouettes, to celebrate the history of Air technology. The series consisted of 7 different themes, one of the most famous iterations from the pack was the Air Max 1 Lemonade, part of the ‘extraordinary greens’ line of the series. The Air Max 1 Limeade, from the same series, is set to re-release on the 19th September, however the drop date for the Air Max 1 Lemonade 2020 trainer is yet to be confirmed.SHOP AM1 Lemonade
This citrusy Air Max 1 is set to look exactly like the original 2006 pair. The toe is constructed of creamy mesh, the same colour continues on to the ankle and tongue in nylon with a satin finish. The tongue features a green embroidered Swoosh logo layered over a lemon slice graphic. The most eye-catching part of the trainer is the reflective quarter, made up of creamy leather with an all-over yellow and white ‘Air’ bubble font logo print, much like the branding of popular lemonades. The quarter is finished with a green logo on the heel in the same ‘pop’ font. The mudguard and swoosh continue the creamy yellow tones in smooth leather, the final details of the upper include a white lining, green eyelets and matching green laces.SHOP AM1 Lemonade
Moving onto the details underfoot, a clean white midsole compliments the lemon upper, followed by a contrasting black rubber outsole. The sole is complete with the exposed air bubble in complimentary green. Inside the shoe, the dark green insole fashions some fun lemony graphics.SHOP AM1 Lemonade
This soda style Air Max 1 will most likely be hugely hyped with sneakerheads, the initial Powerwall release was very limited and the Lemonade and Limeade in particular have held a high resale value. The retail price for this retro will be £130 and will most likely be stocking in the same unisex size range as the Limeade colourway, UK sizes 3-14.
