Nike Women's Air Max 1 Comfort Premium TapeThe Nike Air Max 1, which made its debut in 1987, is known for being the first Nike model to show Nike's Air Max technology with a visible Air-Sole unit. Developed by an independent inventor (who was originally turned down by Adidas), Air Max technology provides superior cushioning and impact absorption. The updated no-sew "Premium Tape" version features a fused textile upper with ultra-thin, lightweight tape. This model also features reflective accents on the upper.
