Nike Women’s Air Max 1 “Barely Rose”

The Nike Women’s Air Max 1 “Barely Rose” brings more of the brand’s premium touches to an all-time classic. This time, the visuals are all about the scorching summer months ahead.


This Women’s exclusive edition of the Air Max 1 arrives in hues of Pink and White. We’ve seen plenty from the AM 1’s premium line-up opt for darker and more tonal schemes. But, seeing as how we are in the warmer months of the year around here, a splash of pastel just feels more appropriate.


The color is complemented by the upper’s construction, which sticks to a motif of soft luxury. As usual, we see the fairly breathable mesh base. It’s mostly visible at the toe box while the rest of this material is covered with overlays of a rich leather.


The top half of the shoe sees these overlays covered in the Rose tone the shoe is named after. Meanwhile, slashes of White show up via sections such as the forefoot, lateral swoosh, and heel counter.


Each of these segmented leather sections is separated by that familiar stitch detailing. This is always a welcome touch as it adds to the shoe’s overall premium feel. Nike Air branding on the heel finishes off this edition’s pristine look.


The Air Max’s readiness for the sunnier months has never been in question. Though Nike also keeps plenty of winterized iterations in stock, the colorways show a versatility that works for summer festivals as well.


Moreover, it gives an extra option to those of us who aren’t convinced by the season to dawn slippers and straw hats. The change of weather is hardly an excuse to dump sneakerhead sensibilities.


Even when the weather outside eventually gets frightful, those leather overlays won’t leave you freezing. Available now, cop your own premium Air Max 1’s today!
