Last offered in Stratus Blue and Acorn colorways, the Nike Air Max 1 Essential returns in another finish this season, officially dubbed Phantom.

Comprised of a more premium execution compared to its traditional counterpart, this offering is made up of plush suede for the majority of its clean, Off-White-colored upper. White mesh is utilized for its toe box, tongue and collar section, while the addition of Cream colored accents are evidenced by leather detailing on the Swoosh, tongue tab and laces.

Further detailed with matching stitching across its entirety to define its profile, more branding is evident on the heel section as well. All situated atop a White midsole unit, a classic gum outsole caps off this stylish and monochromatic pair.

If you’re interested in purchasing, find it at Nike stockists now for a retail price tag of $110.

Author’s Take

I’m just biased towards this silhouette, plus this colorway wins it for me, especially that gum bottom. It’s versatile for all genders as well, so everyone wins.
