Nike WMNS Air Max 1 VT “Vachetta Pack” Sneakers
The Nike Air Max 1 has become an iconic sneaker since its launch in 1987. Since its introduction, the classic silhouette has come in updated models and countless colorways. Worn by men and women all over the world, the Nike Air Max 1 is one of the greatest sneakers Nike released. It has become more than a shoes, it’s become an essential sneaker in the urban fashion scene.
To keep the aesthetics alive, Nike released the Nike Air Max 1 VT Vachetta Sneaker Pack for women. You know how they say, everything gets better with age? Nike took this on board as inspiration for this pack. What’s so special about these sneakers is, as the name suggest, the use of Vachetta leather.
Mostly used for trimmings on luggage and handbags, this type of leather is untreated and is therefore more vulnerable to creasing, stains and darkening caused by sunlight. Why would someone buy such a shoe?
Well, as the sneakers age, it will develop a unique look and becomes more personalized to the wearer. It’s the same idea with faded jeans, creating a unique look to its wearer over time. The more you wear the sneakers, the more they will look like having your own custom pair of Nikes.
The upper part has been meld and constructed with Nike’s Vac-Tech material, a patent leather that will not change through the life of the sneakers, unlike the vachetta leather. It’s comes in 3 vibrant colors perfect for summer: pink, turquoise and yellow.
The idea behind these sneakers is innovative. Even though the vachetta pack is only for womens, we can’t help but wonder what the future holds when Nike decides to releases these for men with different colors.
The Nike Air Max 1 VT will be available at Nike Sportswear retailers beginning June 29.
