Release date: June 16

Editor’s Notes: If you missed the Nike Air Max 1 “Light Madder Root”, Solebox is your next best chance to copy – and score some new tunes for your library.
In May, the summer-approved colorway – comprised of Light Madder Root, Worn Blue, and Vivid Green – hit the streets. Like Travis Scott’s AM1s and Air Max Day 2022 deals, the sneakers have been selling out fast worldwide. No surprise there.
After all, the AM1 is Nike’s current Air Max model, succeeding 2021’s Air Max 90 craze.
Now, Solebox is giving AM1 fans another chance to brighten up their Summer ’22 sneaker rotations, preparing to release the “Light Madder Root” colorway next week.
So what better way to kick off the shoe’s release than with some musical refreshments from Dutch deaf musician Sor?
The multi-faceted entertainer sports a mouth full of gold as he marries the worlds of classical music and hip-hop into a distinctive sound where “high and low culture need not exist”, as stated in Solebox’s press release.
The German boutique couldn’t have picked a better person for some pre-release entertainment, as Sor, like the AM1 model, bridges the gap between subcultures through music.
With Sor and the AM1 in mind as cultural pioneers, Nike decided to outfit the musical artist’s 53-member choir and orchestra with the Air Max 1 “Light Madder Root” sneakers for his May concert at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
Even if you don’t walk away with the Air Max 1 “Light Madder Root,” at least Solebox has you on a new artist to keep on your radar.
