A significant day in the calendars of sneakerheads and casual sneaker fans alike, the 26th of March marks the day we were first introduced to Nike Air, now known as Air Max Day. At some point in our lives, our feet have been lucky enough to experience the comfort, style and versatility that is Nike Air. Whether it be anything from the Air Max 1’s, 90’s and 97’s, to 270’s, 720’s and everything in-between, from that fateful day in 1987, nothing was the same. To celebrate, we’ve put together some of our favourite Air Max styles, to help you get involved in your own way.
Air Max 90
Coming in a clean black upper with premium leather and suede materials, the waterproof toe box is sure to keep your feet feeling fresh, rain, hail or shine. With contrasting grey tones and orange pops at the tongue, midsole badge and air bag unit, this JD Exclusive colour-way is perfect for the new season. We also couldn’t look past the pure white tones of the triple white Air Max 90 which is the definition of footwear versatility.
Air Max 95
A favourite amongst sneakerheads everywhere, the Air Max 95 is renowned for being the first Air Max silhouette to utilise a visible air unit in the forefoot. Coupled with a wavy upper design and signature Air Max tongue label, this Black with Orange pop colour-way gives off subtle halloween cues, perfect for everyday wear.
Air Max 270
The former King of the tallest Air bag unit, the Air Max 270 is a modern classic amongst the pantheon of Air Max silhouettes. Boasting an unapologetic heel unit, tone down the colour-ways and let the tech do all the talking in these clean Triple Black and White/Black colour-ways. With breathable mesh panels and a mini Swoosh as the toe, these ring true to the Air Max ethos of merging performance and style into a sneaker.
Air Max 720
The new kid on the block amongst the Air Max lineage, the Air Max 720 goes bigger and better than ever before. Boasting the tallest air bag visible from 360 degrees vertically and horizontally, the futuristic upper brings these style benders back from the future for the streets of today. Coming in hot in a triple black iteration, the newest Carbon Grey colour-way is one of the crispiest crep’s to arrive yet.
