March is here and that means it’s officially the unofficial holiday for Nike Air Max sneaker collectors. The annual Air Max Day is March 26th, which started in 2014 as a way to celebrate the original Nike Air Max 1 that released on March 26th, 1987. If you recall, the Air Max 1 was revolutionary.

This year, there’s a lot of excitement for Sean Wotherspoon’s Air Max 1/97 Hybrid releasing and the atmos Animal Pack, among plenty of others. But really, what’s a grail for a true Air Max Collector?

An original Nike Air Max 1 from 1987. This OG version may not have the American Flag on the tongue like more modern versions but you can almost hear the colorway chanting…USA, USA, USA! With a production date of 11-1-1987, this was clearly a later colorway of the original Air Max to release back then. Obviously these aren’t wearable but they are a true piece of history and kept under the right conditions, will only become more valuable over time.

You can grab this pair on eBay now.
