Whether we’re talking about National Puppy Day (last Friday), National Waffle Day (yesterday), or Spanish Paella Day (tomorrow), fake holidays abound. And if sneakerheads had to choose a favorite, Nike’s Air Max Day would rank high on the list. Every year on March 26, the brand celebrates the anniversary of the release of the Air Max 1 by dropping plenty of limited-edition sneakers.
This year, the hottest ticket is the Air Max 1/97 VF Sean Wotherspoon. Named after the sneakerhead who won Nike’s 2017 “RevolutionAir” design contest, it’s a retro-tinged pair in shades of yellow, green, and pink which is already going for hundreds on Stadium Goods. But even if you aren’t willing to drop close to $1,000 on footwear, there are plenty of other cool sneakers to buy today. Scroll ahead to shop some of our favorites.
