If there’s one high heat sneaker you need to cop this season then it should be the Nike Air Max 1 NYC Chinatown. This fiery sneaker is set to release alongside the celebrations for the Chinese New Year, taking inspiration from New York City’s Chinatown with this vibrant colourway.

The Chinese New Year has sparked some of the most popular sneaker releases this season and this NYC Chinatown Air Max 1 is no exception. Dressed in premium textiles from heel to toe, this shoe is worth every penny and is sure to take your collection to the next level.



The upper arrives decked out in premium suede, with a silky red textile covering the toe box and heel. Two-tone coloured laces sit over a bright orange tongue that’s decorated with a Chinese symbol, replacing the signature Swoosh logo. The heel panel has also been updated with an embroidered wing horse that’s known as a Chollima in Chinese mythology.



Colour blocking takes over the outsole to create a rainbow effect with dreamy hues of bright blue and vivid pink, adding that extra touch of design to the shoe. The midsole has been kept white for a fresh look, with a red-tinted Air unit for a simple touch of colour.

This has to be one of the hottest AM1’s to drop so far with the vibrant colour palette, luxe textiles and updated design elements. This women’s Nike Air Max 1 NYC Chinatown is set to arrive on the 25th January so make sure you keep it locked to The Sole Womens to find out as soon as it drops!
