With over three decades of innovation, Air Max technology has evolved to keep your footwear style swanky, cushioned and irresistibly fresh year-after-year, after year.

Today, we’ll take a closer look at the game-changing sneakers and how each design has amplified the Air Max unit to suit the streets and the demands of hardcore Nike Air Max aficionados.

Nike Air Max 90

Unlike the ‘80s, the ‘90s boomed in style, pop-culture and sports. Inspired by the ‘90s anthem of making your own mark, Nike decided to make its outsole chunkier and make the hero, the Air Max unit, more visible. The Nike Air Max 90 Shoe complimented style with fresh colourways and padded cuffs.

Nike Air Max 95

The Nike Air Max 95 kept running at its core. Featuring the Air Max unit right under the forefoot, the shoe was the very first design to have a black midsole.

Nike Air Max 97

Although, its predecessors eclipsed the Nike Air Max 97, the shoe was swooshed right off the shelves as soon as it hit the streets. The year brought about famous collaborations with Sony PlayStation, Shady Records and more.

Nike Air Max TN

The Nike Air Max TN (Air Max Tuned Air) made its debut in ’98 with a fusion of tuned pods and Nike Air Max unit. The sneaker took the brand in a bold new direction by featuring an external skeleton and a flat tube lacing.

Nike Air Vapormax

Nike Air Vapormax crafted the sole in an entirely new way, bringing Nike’s dream to life. One of the biggest breakthroughs for the brand was the ability to create an outsole that locks directly to the air bag.

Nike Air Max 270

The Nike Air Max 270 shows off Nike’s biggest heel Air unit yet. Inspired by the Nike Air Max 93 and Air Max 180 shoes, the Air Max 270 brings supreme comfort with an asymmetrical lacing system and clear rubber heel.
