THE FUTURE OF AIR IS HERE.
We could use a lot of superlatives to describe the Nike Air Max 2021. We could tell you that we’ve incorporated recycled materials to design a sneaker with at least 20% recycled content. Or the new Air cushioning unit underfoot is our most revolutionary. Perhaps we’d call it the 'the pinnacle of comfort,' waxing poetic about the cored-out foam midsole that gives you the lightest, softest feel. But maybe we just say it's modern meets technical with a splash of heritage DNA. What fun is giving away the surprises?
The dual-pressure Air-sole unit works in unison with a collapsable cage, delivering a brand new level of comfort whether you're walking 5 miles or to the corner store.
The upper includes engineered mesh, woven textile and no-sew skins for a sleek style that's durable, lightweight, and airy.
The foam midsole is split into 2 sections and cored out (like a honeycomb) for lightweight cushioning that lasts.
Nike Air Max Origins
Revolutionary Air technology first made its way into Nike footwear in 1978. In 1987, the Air Max 1 debuted with visible Air technology in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air cushioning—suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking color combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
