Happy Air Max Day!—Coveteur Weighs In on Our Favorite Pairs of All Time

Remember the Bacons?

Happy Air Max Day, friends! When the rarest, forgotten, and most popular range of Air Maxes will be spotted on the feet of almost every other person you pass on the sidewalk. A little bit of a history lesson: The first Air Max model (the Air Max 1) was released by legendary designer Tinker Hatfield on this exact day in 1987, and it’s been a fan favorite ever since. This year Nike won’t be releasing any new sneakers—instead they’re focusing their efforts on their Give Fresh Air campaign. Dont fret; we can still reminisce about the best colorways and styles that have been released over the last 32 years. Below, we weigh in on our favorites of all time. Feel free to slide in our DMs to let us know yours.

Air Max 97 Gold Swarovski Crystal, $400

Look at all the SPARKLE action on these shoes! I audibly gasped when I unwrapped them the first time. Although I’ve always been a fan of the 97s, I’d been dragging my feet to get a pair of my own, but as soon as I spotted these babies I knew I had to have them in my closet. They’re almost too pretty to wear, but with a cropped trouser and oversized blazer, they’re literal fire.
