Straight from the oak tree, Nike’s latest drop is a very limited edition Air Max 1 with a cork upper. Released on Friday, the batch was limited to only 100 sneakers and was sold at Nike’s new Soho location in New York.
With the classic Air Max low silhouette, the upper is made from natural cork and is complete with a white rubber outsole. With this being one of Nike’s most exclusive renditions of the Air Max, each pair sold at the Soho store is individually marked from 1 to 100 near the heel.
How well does cork perform during a NYC winter? Probably not well, but it’s unlikely any of the 100 lucky sneakerheads will be walking around in these limited-edition Nike’s anytime soon.
