The Nike Air Max running line has featured some of the most popular sneaker searches in the United States over the past one year. In an interesting inverse touch, the mudguard is dressed in a satin white which is a compelling flip on normal lifestyle colorblocking, which would typically give the mudguard a bright color and use simple red tones for the base. Researchers at the University of Tennessee tested multiple runners and found that they used less energy running in the Air shoes rather than conventional running shoes. Among his more audacious and good ideas, it is placing tiny air bags in the soles of athletic shoes to soften impact.
According to a new study released by professors, five models in the line made in the top 5 lists. With Sepia Stone leading this way, this 90 also opts for light hits of khaki and contrasting notes of black and white, while its signature mudguard equips a premium suede textile to add a bit more of a premium touch beyond its customary mix of mesh and leather. Boston-based sportswear company New Balance was ranked fifth through its popular five hundred models, boasting the brand’s signature gray color palettes on a sporty silhouette.
While its original intention was to lessen impact for runners, the Air Max design has had one of the biggest crossover appeals in sneaker history. Last year we saw the Air Max 90, Air Max 95, and Air Max 97 come dressed in a colorful array of hues as well as an abundance of premium textiles and patterns. All products featured have been independently selected and curated by our editorial staff. The Air Max has transcended the Nike brand, mixing the perfect blend of style and performance. It continues to have a cultural impact to this day. What was left in the mid 80s was to capture the attention of even more joggers.
