The Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit (Shot On The iPhone 6) Keeps Me Company Through My Vacation

The Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit kept me company through my vacation. All the images are shot on my iPhone 6 with minimal in-phone edits. I covered it on my Instagram real time. But nothing beats a good summarisation!

I was headed to Malaysia and Vietnam on my annual vacation and wanted to travel light. Sneakers, you should know, amount to the most weight I end up packing during my trips. But this time I wanted to go easy and carry just 1 pair. And for that to make sense, it had to be the lightest good looking sneaker I could get my hands on. Needless to say, it had to team up well with whatever I wore. Which is why my obvious choice was the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit.

What I loved about this new pick, is the fact that the original “Sport Red” colour way makes a come back on the Air Max 1. And with the structural changes in this sneaker, it is a perfect mix of old school cool and new age tech!

My travels took me through Selangor and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Saigon and Hanoi in Vietnam. There was so much walking done through the 8 days and 6 flights that we took.

View from the top of the Kuala Lumpur tower, that is 1381 feet above ground.

The crowded beer streets and Chinese markets of Selangor, against the Petronas Towers and very-hipster Bangsar district of Kuala Lumpur. Then there was the very culture rich but super humid Hanoi against the street-wear rich Saigon. I chanced upon 2 pretty rad and new street wear brands when in Saigon – 5TheWay and HFWTH.
