This Nike Air Max 1 is expected to look exactly like the original featuring Beige suede paneling, Deep Red snakeskin embossing, and ostrich embellishments. It also features Orange detailing, a transparent toe box, which displays the insoles that shows the pressure points of the foot as a nod to a Chinese medicinal theory atop a translucent outsole displaying an image of the foot completes the design.
