If there is a "glory years" period for the Air Max 1, the atmos x Nike Air Max 1 B "Viotech" is the perfect representation of that era. Released in 2003 as a collaboration between Japanese sneaker retailer atmos and Nike, the Viotech Air Max 1 is considered by most as one of the greatest sneakers of all time. It was once ranked as number 12 on the Complex "100 Best Sneakers of the Complex Decade" in 2012. What makes the Viotech Air Max 1 so great is a combination of things. First, atmos had already proven itself as a collaborator on its Safari AM1 design. Second, the combination of earthy tones (officially, Khaki/Viotech-Dark Mocha-Metallic Gold) across the upper along with the "Viotech" purple Swoosh and embroidered mini-Swoosh in Metallic Gold on the side of the toe, made it one of the most unique colorways ever created at the time. Not to mention the white paneling and surround behind the Swoosh, that was also rarely seen prior to that point. Last but not least, the limited production and hype, including a "friends and family" version that dropped 4 years later, makes this Air Max 1 legendary. Even without the hype, the uniqueness of the design and combination of subtle colors with accent "pop" colors makes the atmos x Nike Air Max 1 B "Viotech" a true classic.
