SKU: FQ8742-100 Category: Tag:


Chicago and footwear go hand in hand, like jazz and blues in a smoky club. This city isn’t just known for its towering skyscrapers and delicious deep-dish pizzas; it has firmly etched its legacy in the annals of sneaker culture. Most notably, the Windy City gifted us the iconic Air Jordan 1 colorway, a design that is a testament to the city’s enduring impact on street fashion. Over the years, numerous shoes have tipped their hat to Chicago, and now Nike is set to continue that tradition.

Unveiled from Nike’s treasure trove, the Air Max 1 – a silhouette that changed the game in 1987 under the visionary craftsmanship of Tinker Hatfield – is making waves once again. Nike Sportswear is preparing to launch the Air Max 1 ’86 “Chicago” as part of the highly-anticipated “Chicago Pack” this October.

Painted with a harmonious blend of White, Blue Chill, and Wolf Grey, this release isn’t just a shoe; it’s a canvas that captures the essence of Chicago. Crafted with insights from the city’s local shops, its design intricacies resonate deeply with the Chi-town vibe. Every stitch tells a story from a collar imitating Chicago’s organized grid streets to an insole reminiscent of its majestic skyline. And for those night-time adventurers, the 3M reflective details come alive under dim lights. Grounding this masterpiece is a Sail midsole equipped with the quintessential Air Max heel units, standing proudly on a Blue and Black rubber outsole.

When were Air Max 1 released?

In 1987, the Air Max 1 changed the world of footwear forever. Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the icon made the invisible visible, with the arrival of visible Air Max cushioning.

Air Max Vs AF: 3 key differences in the Nike sneakers

1) Design

The most noticeable difference between Air Max and Air Force is the design of the shoes. Both sneakers are known for their unique and eye-catching designs. However, Air Max shoes feature a visible air unit in the sole, which gives them a distinct, futuristic look.

Air Force , on the other hand, have a more classic design with a smooth, solid sole.

2) Comfort

Both Air Max and Air Force are designed with comfort in mind, but they use different technologies to achieve this. Air Max shoes have a more cushioned sole with a larger air unit, which provides a bouncier and more responsive feel. Air Force shoes have a more traditional sole with less cushioning, which provides a firmer and more stable feel.

3) Functionality

While both Air Max and Air Force are popular for casual wear, they have different intended purposes. Air Max shoes are designed more for running and athletic activities, while Air Force shoes are designed more for basketball and other court sports.

Air Max are typically lighter and more flexible, while Air Force are more durable and supportive.
