March 26th marks the annual Nike Air Max Day, the Swoosh sneaker holiday for the true shoe fans. Introduced four years ago, Air Max Day honours the first release of the iconic Air Max 1 on the same day in 1987. Now, we celebrate 3/26 with re-launches of beloved styles from the vault, new generation Airs and unveiling the never-seen-before silhouettes. This year just got a little more exciting, so are you ready? Then raise your Airs up for Nike Air Max Day 2018 at Sun & Sand Sports online.
Just when you thought the beloved Air Force style couldn’t get any better, here comes a hybrid that transports the past to the future. Put the high top Nike Air Force 180 upper with updated lacing and the huge 270 Air sole unit together and we have the biggest Air Max Day 2018 reveal yet – the new Air Force 270 Shoe. The hook-and-loop strap of the 180 is upgraded to a magnetic closure with an orange tab and two-tone grey stripes, which pay homage to the colours of the Nike shoeboxes. Because for Nike, the packaging and littlest details are all part of the sneaker experience.
The earlier teasers of the 270s have all been leading up to this day, and the new addition to the Air Max family did not fail to impress in style and performance. The Air Max 270 is all about design innovation, taking off from Nike’s running influence, but built for lifestyle wear. The 270 features the tallest Air unit yet for extra comfort and oomph. We’ve got the freshest colourways here and keep an eye out for more iterations coming soon.
Be lighter than ever with the Air VaporMax with a full Air Sole without the midsole. First released last year, this shoe has gained a fanbase amongst trend-makers and sneakerheads. Think impact protection and supreme cushioning whether running short distances or just walking. You’ll love the new, bright colourways for men and women, available now.
The new releases are amazing, but the classic styles will not be outshined. The Air Max 90 proves the long lifespan of Tinker Hatfield’s designs. The chunky sole with the visible Air unit is timeless, and in a time when throwbacks are cool, the Air Max 90 continues to surprise with upgraded uppers and bold colourways. Just look at this crisp all-white.
We still love the rippled effect, the colour blending and the layered textile and mesh, but what truly sets it apart is the visible Air unit on the forefoot. The new generation 95s are all about fun colour combinations in premium material to elevate your sports style.
Sleek and streamlined, just like the high-speed Japanese bullet train it was inspired by. The 97 is among the most recognisable uppers of the bunch, and it is the first to showcase the full-length Air unit on the sole. We’re crazy about the new hues that matches the Air unit colour, and you will too.
Apart from our love for these shoes, Air Max Day highlights Nike’s commitment to footwear design and technology innovation, and how these sneakers have redefined fashion, culture and the sneaker game then, now and forever.
