This past March, Nike celebrated its annual Air Max Day with a number of exclusive releases worldwide. Since then, the brand launched the next generation of Air Max silhouettes with the introduction of the VaporMax sneakers. Today, the Swoosh heads back into their archives as the brand unveils an updated version of the classic Air Max 1 sneaker.

Returning to select Nike Sportswear retailers, the Swoosh presents two brand new iterations of the Air Max 1 sneaker in premium versions. With both sneakers dressed in a premium white leather upper, Nike gives the shoes an updated touch with jeweled swooshes on the side panels of each shoe. With one pair of sneakers featuring a rare ruby jewel check, and the other a black mini jewel swoosh, both kicks are closed out by a visible Max Air unit and matching outsoles.

Along with the release of the Air Max 1 Premium jewels, Nike will also drop the Nike Cortez sneaker featuring the jewel swoosh logos on each of the shoe's side panels.

Both pairs of Air Max Premium kicks will be available for purchase at select Nike retailers starting Thurs., June 1. Look for both sneakers to retail for a suggested price of $140.
