ULTRA LIGHT. ULTRA COMFORTABLE. When the Air Max 1 hit the scene in 1987, it changed the sneaker world forever. The Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Moire Women's Shoe builds upon that game-changing heritage with new innovations—like a minimalist upper and slimmed-down outsole—that combine to create an incredibly light, flexible and comfortable shoe.Lightweight Comfort The soft, synthetic suede upper has all-over laser perforations that provide breathable comfort.

The result: Nike’s lightest Air Max to date.Ultra-Flexibility Deep flex grooves in a cored-out midsole reduce weight and allow the foot to move naturally, making this the most flexible Air Max 1 yet.Versatile Style An updated, low-profile design gives the iconic sneaker a versatile, go-anywhere look.
