Nike have released their 2016 version of the legendary Nike Air Max. The shoe, made with the revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in the late ’70s. In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, not only for Air-Sole comfort but for aesthetic too. The Air Max has since become a Nike staple with athletes and collectors- evident in the many and varied colour combinations.
One of the most commented assets of the Air Max is the cushioned comfort it provides, with maximum, flexible cushioning courtesy of the full-length Max Air unit designed with a tubular construction that enhances flexibility while putting more air underfoot for unrivalled comfort.
The latest 2016 incarnation features an engineered mesh provides ventilation for your forefoot while supporting your mid-foot. The partial mesh inner sleeve enhances breathability while offering a sock-like fit, alongside Flywire cables which integrate with the laces and wrap your arch for an adaptive, supportive fit.
- Plush foam and mesh tongue for breathable comfort
- Midsole flex grooves provide greater forefoot flexibility
- Waffle outsole for durability and great multi-surface traction
- Reflective details enhance visibility in low light
Sitting between a running shoe and streetwear style, the Nike Air Max, whatever your take on it, has a place in shoe history- an undoubted classic for wearers or collectors.
