NikeLab puts their work on the Air Max 1 for one Royal treatment. The iconic Tinker Hatfield design will receive a premium makeover dubbed as the Air Max 1 Royal. The retro sneakers receive a high end take but the original look maintained. The luxurious upgrade to it can be seen on its uppers made out of deconstructed suede with paired up waxed cotton laces. Other details include the leather heel cup for its interior and matching welt that connect the upper and its midsole in stark white. You can check out its two different colors in all NikeLab dealers such as the Dover Street Market NY beginning March 26 but only in limited numbers.
The NikeLab concentrates in sport research with its own institute found in Beaverton, Oregon. Owned by Nike, their lab was first opened in 1980.
