You can count on the fingers of one hand the number of shoes that have had the kind of influence on popular culture Nike’s famous Air Max has. Now into it’s 26th year, this iconic dynasty has seen more incarnations than most, incorporating the latest technologies and processes as it strives to constantly improve and reinvent. Yet the reason for the success’ of the Air Max series lies with it’s core designs, with it’s five most famous silhouettes – the Max 1, 90, 95, 97 and 180 – heading the field. The trail-blazing technologies used in the initial designs may have been moved on, but the influence that these world famous designs have had will always be at the heart of Nike’s visible air series.
As devotees of the Air Bag, we want to celebrate this legendary name. We have given the Air Max its very own section on our website, and we’ve even constructed our own series of fact cards, inspired by a certain school yard game, packed full of facts about some of our favourite kicks. They’ll never be able to solve the age old argument about which Air Max is ‘better’ but we thought it was a great way to celebrate one of Beaverton’s greatest ever creations.
