    Nike Air technology consists of pressurised air inside a tough yet flexible bag and provides more flexibility and spring without compromising structure. The Air-Sole units maintain their given form with elasticity, lower Adidas ZX 750 Damen impact and keep the shoe snug and lightweight.

    In 1978, Nike Adidas Nmd Homme debuted the Air Tailwind — the first sneaker to Asics Gel Lyte 5 Dames feature air cushioning technology. The revolutionary idea of adding air to a sneaker came from former NASA engineer Frank Rudy. One small idea from Rudy, one giant leap for Nike.

    The Air Tailwind sneaker was first released in extremely limited quantities for the 1978 Honolulu Marathon before releasing to the public a year later. We imagine that was a very long, painful year for first-generation hypebeasts.

    Air Max sneakers are special due to Tinker Hatfield’s incredible early designs. The Air Max 1 is one of the greatest sneakers ever, and the mystique of the Air Max line all starts there.

    Designed by Tinker Hatfield, the Nike Air Max 1 was the first sneaker to offer a window to the sole. The out-of-the-box thinker was inspired by the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris to design the sneaker Nike Air Max 90 Damen that made its Air technology Nike Air Max 2017 Dámské visible.

    There are so many great Air Max 1 collaborations which makes it hard to pick just one. But I’ll go with the original atmos x Nike Air Max 1 Safari from 2003.

    Originally dubbed the Air Max 3, The Nike Air Max 90 completely reworked the Air Max sneaker for the new decade. Still today, the Air Max 90 is one of the most popular sneakers in the world.

    One incredibly important element to the greatness of Air Max is the fact that there are so many OG colourways that are now iconic, such as the Persian Violet OG iteration of the Nike Air Max BW. - Zack

    The Nike Air Classic BW was originally a sleeker version of the Air Max 90 with a bigger Air window (yes, the BW really does stand for ‘Big Window’). Most recently, the Nike Air Max BW has been updated with a full-length Air sole borrowed from the Air Max 97. First seen on a Asics Gel Quantum 360 Womens SKAir model by Skepta; we think the changes majorly upgrade the sneaker.

    The Persian Violet is obviously the most iconic, but the often-forgotten original Marina/Jade colourway is amazing, and definitely my favourite.

    Time to get playful. The first Nike sneaker to display Air technology on its outsole, the Nike Air Max 180 (180-degree views of visible air) was in many ways a departure from the tried-and-tested formula of the early Air Maxs.

    Created using a blow-moulding technique, the Air Max 93 (the original Air Max 270) took the design of the Air Max 180 and gave us coloured Air units (yess), a sock-like fit (yessss) and more air for our money .

    Entering more unfamiliar territory on our journey through Air Max history, the 1994 Air Max (predictably labelled the Air Max 94) is frequently overlooked or unknown by even the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 Mujer most avid sneaker collectors. So, what is it? It’s essentially Adidas I 5923 Mujer a hybrid of the Nike Air Max Light and The Nike Air Max 93. And if you’re asking us, we think that makes it pretty damn cool.

    My absolute favourite Air Max model is one that has still never had a re-release, the Air Max 2 from 1994. This was one of the last Air Maxs that Tinker Hatfield designed, and it introduced multiple Air chambers with different pressures for strategic cushioning and support (later found in the Air Max 95). The upper, speckled mudguard and different-coloured Air units in the heel all come together to make one incredible design.
