Air Max Day is fast approaching and if you’re planning to stock up on a couple of fresh pairs, you’re in luck.
Ever since Nike.com entered Southeast Asia, sneakerheads have been able to pick up pairs on the fly right from our computer screens. No exception has been made here when it comes to their Air Max collection of sneakers, most of which are available for purchase right now on the site.
Here are 5 must-buy pairs to cop right now for men and women.
1) Nike Air Max 97 Ultra ’17
Decked out in Metallic Gold, the Air Max 97 Ultra ’17 is the golden brother of the famed Silver Bullet. The Ultra ’17 label indicates its reconstruction with mesh and knit for a lighter weight and a sleeker cut for the new generation of sneakerheads.
That’s not all. The silhouette also comes in two more colourways, one in Black and another in smooth creamy White.
2) Nike Air VaporMax Black Pop
The VaporMax has been a growing success for Nike, particularly with the silhouette’s distinct translucent full-length Air unit. The “Black Pop” colourway, for instance, comes lock and loaded with a Rush Orange sole unit to constant its black upper for a simple yet impactful colour combination like no other.
3) Nike Air Max 180
With everything old becoming new again, Nike’s Air Max line has a host of retro sneakers that better now than ever. One of these silhouettes is the Air Max 180, in its throwback colourway of white, red and ultramarine.
Matching perfectly with long with socks and your latest vintage pickup, take the 180 for a spin just in time for Air Max Day.
4) Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit OG
Honouring old-school OG colourways, this pair of Air VaporMax is part of Nike’s heritage collection, representing both the past and the present. The colourway is familiar and reminiscent of a not-so-distant past of Air Max shoes, this time on the innovative VaporMax silhouette.
The striking University Red on the Swoosh gives it an added ‘pop’ and contrast to stand out from the already sleek pair.
5) Nike Air Max 270
While the VaporMax took to the shelves in 2017, this year’s newbie in Nike’s Air Max lineup is the Air Max 270. This new dynamic silhouette takes on the tallest ever Air unit, measuring at 32mm, at its heel.
It’s also the first Air Max sneaker that was designed for lifestyle purposes as its primary purpose, as opposed to sports and fitness.
1) Nike Air Max 90
The Women’s edition of the Air Max 90 honours its heritage by providing a supportive upper and top of the range cushioning to keep your feet comfortable while looking stylish AF.
This colourway of the 90 mixes pink-beige with gunsmoke grey, atop a fitting gum sole for the perfect faded jeans accompaniment.
2) Nike Air Max 95 Premium
With many retro sneakers making a comeback, the one at the forefront right now is arguably the Air Max 95. Unbeknownst to many, the Air Max 95 was designed with the human body as its inspiration. The sole represents the spine, while the layered waves act as muscle fibres and loopholes as a rib cage.
This premium remake of the classic shoe is made from leather for that luxe feel and texture.
3) Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit “Black/Vintage Wine”
While deceivingly looking like a plain black colourway, this version of the VaporMax has subtle hints of Vintage Wine throughout the Flyknit weave on its upper. The result is a simple but elegant piece of footwear that is worthy of any occasion.
4) Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit “Grey Multicolor”
On the other spectrum, the “Grey Multicolor” is the very opposite of the subtlety of the previous pair. Taking on a very distinct and eye-catching Multicolor weave on a predominantly grey base, the appropriately named “Grey Multicolor” is as striking as it goes and for good reason.
5) Nike Air Max 270
Similar to the men’s pair, the Air Max 270 is the hottest general release from the Swoosh and is set to arrive in more colourways in the lead up to Air Max Day. Three colourways are now available, including the perfectly balanced Ocean Bliss colour scheme with its contrasting red Air unit at its heel.
