After launching the “Mellow” colorway, Concepts officially announces part two of its Nike Air Max 1 collaboration: the Concepts x Nike Air Max 1 “Heavy.”
This second colorway features a similar mix of materials and details inspired by late ’60s music festival culture and the Summer of Love. This time around, we have denim, tiger camo, and leather paneling, a “mud” speckled midsole, corduroy around the collar, and more.
“Looking at photos from late ’60s music festivals, I’m always fascinated by the style. In some respects, it’s so different from where we are today. However, in it I see some of what became the building blocks of contemporary streetwear,” says Deon Point, Concepts Creative Director. “With this version of the Air Max 1, we really wanted to highlight all the different fabrics that were visible through the sea of festival attendees.”
