AMAZING BUT FLAWED - Nike Air Max 1 'Tokyo Maze' Cinematic Onfoot Review
Now Mr B has Nike Air Max 1 'Tokyo Maze' by Yuta Takuman in hand we put it through its cinematic onfoot paces and discover a potential flaw in this amazing sneaker.
To recap from the unboxing - we unboxed a pair of Nike Air Max 1 and loved them a ton! If you didn't know last year, Nike invited locals in New York City, London, Paris, Seoul, Shanghai, and Tokyo to design their own Nike Air Max inspired by the cities and communities in which they lived. Nike held a series of “On Air” workshops and 18 finalists were selected based on the creative and unique designs on various iterations of the Air Max sneaker. The sneaker public then voted on six winners, one per city, which included Yuta Takuman from Tokyo.
Takuman’s Nike Air Max 1 dubbed, “Tokyo Maze,” pays homage to the crazy and colorful tube lines that zoom around beneath the bustling city of Tokyo. While the design may, on first look appear to be printed, its actually embossed leather representing the city’s concrete surface, while the red bubble is a nod to the iconic Tokyo Tower, so many nice finishing touches to this pair of sneakers.
These really are a special Air Max 1, and in my opinion the strongest design in this "On Air" collection but hold a fundamental flaw.
Thanks for watching,
