Happy Air Max Day

Wednesday, 26th March, 2014


That’s right, today, 26th March 2014 is officially Air Max Day, and Nike have released this commemorative pair of Air Max 1. Happy 27th Birthday to Air Max, which were released on this day in 1987, when I was only 2 years old! They do not seem that old to me, but I do have fond memories of my Air Max.

I remember one of the first pairΒ I got…It must of been in 1995, Nike Air Max Classic. They were mostly navy with flashes of green, they were amazing! πŸ˜€ Back in school if you didn’t have a pair of Air Max you were a nobody :mrgreen: I got them in the first week they came out, so I was the first one in my class and even the school to have them, what a great day. They were expensive back then too, around the same price as they are now, but that was almost 20 years ago! :p

And after that I became the envy of many people, some actually hated me after I got my next pair…Air Max Tailwind! Not only an air bubble at the side, but one at the back too! These were even more expensive, but I remember eventually getting them after finding a deal in a shop and was over the moon. Still kids it was the days of looking in the catalogue all the time lusting after the expensive trainers I thought I would never get…But then did πŸ˜€

It’s fair to say that I was part of the Air Max culture when I was growing up, especially through my early teens. It always brings back good memories, and after a long time of being out of the Air Max loop it’s time to get back into the game… πŸ˜‰
