Already this season we have seen the arrival of four brand new pairs of trainers from sportswear giants, Nike. Continuing to push forward with new technologies and bold colourways, the latest set of releases feature iconic silhouettes such as the Air Max1, 90, 93 and 180. Nike have managed to incorporate their different sole systems into one shoe and for the Air Max Lunar1 and Lunar90 (as shown above), the Air technology combines with Lunarlon soles to create incredibly comfortable trainers.
Sticking with the OG colourway, Nike have given the Air Max1 a 2014 makeover that still retains the iconic looks of the original model. The upper has been crafted out of a mixture of red, white and grey mesh panels to aid with breathability and all of these individual sections have been taped together using Nike’s robust Hyperfuse technology.
The combination of two sole units not only gives a fresh look for one of the most famous trainers ever, it also makes them a pleasure to wear. A great interpretation of an all time classic.
Originally released in 1992, the Air Max 180 was created by legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield. The slimmer shape with a plethora of panels on the main body has resulted in the 180 being one of Nike’s most iconic and beloved silhouettes.
This version benefits from a bold use of pattern and colour to compliment the black nubuck suede and neoprene upper. The waffle rubber sole comes in a lively pattern and works well with the turquoise leather heel patch and crimson swoosh to give an almost retro feel.
Nike have taken a step back in time with the release of the Air Max 93 in the original menthol colourway. Released in 1993 and also known as the Air Max 270 thanks to the large air bubble that surrounds the rear of the sole, this was Nike’s test to see how far they could push their Air technology.
This is one of the OG colourways and comes in a simple white, black and menthol green. The main part of the shoe is made from premium leather but black nubuck suede and lightweight mesh are also present. The 93 features an inner neoprene sock to aid with comfort and fit.
