Weird flex but ok

There are a hundred ways to reimagine the Air Max 1, ranging from different material choices, fusion models, to funky colorways. Some are well-executed, while some are oddballs. The latter is applicable for this upcoming NRG model of the Air Max 1, as leaked by Py_rates.

What makes this Air Max 1 strange? The fact that its uppers are inspired by green turf grass. That being said, they appear to have the texture of actual grass, with a white stitched Swoosh breaking the dominant grassy upper. You also get green laces with this pair, and the fuzzy upper is complemented by a white Air Max 1 midsole and a gum-colored trail outsole.

These are slated to drop soon for $140(~Php 7.4k). According to Sneaker Bar Detroit, these might be a special pair for the Super Bowl LIII. If you ask us, they should be called the “Oscar the Grouch” Air Max 1s since they resemble the famous Sesame Street character.

What do you think about this pair?
