The Air Max 1 turned 27 this year and continues to be an important part of Nike's running and sportswear catalog. From new colorways to different technology, this late '80s runner has seen its share of changes. For our Kicks of the Day, we take a look at one of the latest mockups through the Air Max 1 Breathe in the "Pure Platinum/University Red" colorway.

The debut of the Air Max 1 Breathe couldn't have come at a better time with summer just around the corner. With this all-new model, 'heads get a deconstructed silhouette with a more breathable and refined upper. It's equipped with mesh paneling to promote proper airflow and no-sew overlays that give it a sleek appearance. Despite the updates, the Air Max 1 Breathe still maintains its signature midsole and Air-Sole unit for lightweight cushioning.

Breathe easy this summer and add these Air Max 1s to your collection by picking up a pair on Nike.com for $120.
