Set to drop in the run-up to animation studio Laika’s latest movie, the newest addition to the Nike Air Max 1 family makes quite the statement. Done out in a wild multicolored upper with a sail “Swoosh”, brown midsole and gum sole, StockX is now giving you the chance to cop the very first pairs of the new Air Max Susan “Missing Link”.
The design inspiration comes care of Nike founder Phil Knight’s son and owner of Laika, Travis. But this is no first rodeo when it comes to Nike collabs, with the kicks joining Laika-designed Nike silhouettes including the Air Foamposite One ParaNorman, Dunk High Coraline, Roshe Run The Boxtrolls “Trollstrikes”, and Air Jordan 15 Kubo.
This particular pair of AM1s takes cues from new film “Missing Link”s main character, Mr. Link, and his multi-patterned brown, yellow, and green costume. The “Susan” part of its name comes from a social blunder made early on in the film in an attempt to hide his identity.
And while previous releases remain popular among collectors at StockX, it’s unclear quite how its price on the secondary marketplace will be affected after it officially drops on Friday, April 12 – this being the first ever Nike x Laika release to get a commercial release.
