Nike's iconic Air Max 1 runner gets updated with premium material and footbed technology with the Essential collection. What's even better is that the upgrades don’t interfere with the sneaker’s original flavor.

The Nike Air Max 1 Essential comes in a variety of colors but their newest iteration comes in a white, black and wolf grey colorway. The iconic build associated with the runner is aggressive but has been streamlined a bit.

The sneakers' mesh upper sits right above a fused mudguard with lightweight plastic paneling supplying the durability. A mini swoosh pops up on the sneaker’s toe box for a dash of personality while it’s retooled outsole adds in some extra comfort.

The Nike Air Max 1 Essential colorway is available now at for $120.
