The next Nike Air Max 1 iD Fall palette update date has changed twice already and since it has now been moved to the 20th of June, Nike has a little surprise. If you head to Nike iD right now, you can actually play with the new colors and material update. This now includes Denim to all the overlays. Exciting! But wait, is this really denim and is that a gum bottom? Check out the details and in-store exclusive options…
We finally get a color update that includes 14 hues. Setting it off are, Safety Orange, Sport Red, Pink Spark, Bold Berry, Sapphire Blue, Binary Blue, Cinder, Dark Cinder, Sesame, Vibrant Yellow, Turquoise Blue, Green Apple, Matte Silver, Black, and White. Some standard colors that are not really pushing my design buttons. Take note that some colors can only be seen by choosing the material you want the overlays to be.
Next up is the addition of two new materials to use on the silhouette. You still have the Suede option and the Boot leather choice, but now freshly introduced to the AM1 iD is Denim. I’m curious to see what it looks like because they list it as a canvas. <-That negates the whole denim look because canvas is thin and not anywhere near as heavy as denim. I’m sure it’s not going to look like the Patta AM1 denim pack, but we’ll just have to wait for the samples to really know for sure. The other material is Corduroy, but you can only use this option at the Nike iD studio in-store. This will not be available to the online consumer.
The last three things start with a Sport mesh that is listed as the next available option replacing the Winter one. It looks like it’s the original mesh that most have been waiting for (Please let it be). The other mesh is the ACG one we saw on the AM90 iD. The next offer that I have been really waiting for is the inclusion of a Gum colored bottom. Now we saw this hit the Air MAx 90 iD and no one had a clue if it would be a real gummy sole or not because of the description. Luckily, it did turn out to be a true gum bottom. So, I hope this is the case for this outer-sole option; Please don’t let it be a colored bottom like the one that’s on the current Air Force 1 iD.
You already know to stay tuned for the sample images, swatches and one design that I will be ordering. Not crazy about the colors at all, but I love the material options. What do you all think?
