Things are heating up for fans of the Nike Air Max 1 this summer as the beloved “Curry” colorway returns for the first time since its original release in 2003.
After 15 years, the Air Max 1 “Curry” has become a coveted Air Max 1, hailed as one of the best releases from the iconic 1987 running shoe’s “golden age” of retros of the early to mid-2000s. Now collectors won’t have to seek out and pay for a rare vintage pair, which have been going for anywhere from $400 up to $1,000 on the resale market.
Nike is serving up a fresh batch of the spicy Air Max 1 on May 10, and now there are even two other “flavors” to choose from.
Along with the classic yellow-orange “Curry” colorway, the Air Max 1 receives new “Green Curry” and “Red Curry” looks. Like the original, the two new colorways each feature a combination of mesh, nubuck, and suede for their construction to complement the yellow edition perfectly.
But Nike’s new menu of curry-themed Air Max 1 releases isn’t complete yet. The original “Curry” colorway will also release in a pint-sized edition for toddlers, ensuring even the youngest Air Max fans can get in on the fun of this summer’s spiciest sneaker release.
The Nike Air Max 1 “Curry Pack” releases Thursday, May 10 via Nike SNKRS and at select retailers around the world. Adult sizes are priced at $150, while the toddler edition is $50.
