The Nike Air Max 1, a classic sneaker that first debuted 36 years ago, continues to hold a special place in the hearts of sneakerheads. And during Nike’s recent SNKRS Showcase, they gave us a sneak peek of what’s to come from Holiday 2023 to Spring 2025, including the highly anticipated return of Tinker Hatfield’s original Air Max in its iconic “Sport Royal” colorway set to release in the first half of 2024. But that’s not all, the Air Max 1 has also been seen in a fresh new color scheme perfect for fall – “Wheat/Flax/Outdoor Green”.

The “Wheat” Air Max 1 features a mix of brown hues that have been a staple in Nike’s Sportswear lineup for their versatility and winter boot vibes. The shoe’s design starts with an off-white textile base, which serves as the canvas for the “Wheat” and “Flax” fabric overlays. The profile swooshes, tongues, and laces take on a more neutral tone, providing a nice contrast to the autumn-inspired palette. Completing the look is a bone-like finish on the Nike Air-assisted midsoles and a “Light Gum Brown” waffle-patterned traction for that extra touch of heritage.

While we don’t have an official release date from Nike, it’s safe to say that these cozy kicks will be dropping soon. Priced at $150 USD, they’re sure to be a hit among sneaker enthusiasts looking to add some fall flair to their rotation.

And if you’re craving more sneaker news, you won’t believe what McDonald’s and Crocs have cooked up together. Stay tuned to find out more about this unexpected collaboration. But for now, feast your eyes on the official photos of the “Wheat” Air Max 1 and start planning your fall outfits accordingly.
