The golden age of sneakerheads started undisputedly in the first half of the 2000s. During this time Nike served (future) classics like on the assembly line - partly without special background stories - the often special color and material combinations were enough to give the releases that "certain something"! For an absolute 1er Grail from this time, the time has come: the Nike Air Max 1 Crepe/Hemp comes back and will be available at Asphaltgold.
First released as part of the "Crepe" pack in 2004, the retro comes in just as strong but with slight updates. Then as now, the *Crepe Hemp* was distinguished by a unique toebox made of "Woven Hemp". The suede upper in brown and the eye-catching Swoosh in turquoise complete the colorway. Of particular note is the crepe sole, which is very rarely used in the Air Max family. The 2022 version is very close to the original look, but differs (for practical reasons) in the upper from the OG: the wrinkling of the classic Hemp-Upper was so severe that it was decided to replace the original material with a more wearable braided upper - wear your shoes!
