Air Max 1 ‘86 • Chicago

October 26, 2023 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers

Air Max 1 ‘86 • Chicago

Celebrate the Chicago skyline with the Air Max 1 ’86. History lesson: In the wake of the Great Chicago Fire, residents worked together to rebuild, replacing charred wooden structures with steel, concrete and glass. The AM1 ’86 “Chicago” pays homage to this “second city,” bringing the hues of modern skyscrapers to premium leather and suede. Blue Chill accents and a reflective Swoosh nod to the mirror image of downtown towers in the surface of Lake Michigan. And on the the insole and tongue label, you’ll find that iconic skyline, overlayed by a Nike Swoosh.

Chicago Pack

Built for, validated by, and told through the city: Chicago, this one’s for you. Nike teamed up with six local streetwear legends (Leaders, Notre, RSVP, St. Alfred, SVRN and Succezz) to craft sneakers inspired by the resilience of Chicagoans past and present. Through the stories at the heart of these designs, the Chicago Pack evokes an ever-evolving blend of heritage and modernity, fire and water, steel and wood. As a unifying touch, both footwear styles feature a special-edition graphic on the insole and tongue label—the Chicago skyline overlayed by a Nike Swoosh.
