30 years strong, the Nike Air Max continues to evolve into the future. This week, Nike Sportswear introduced the Nike Air Max Breathe Collection.
The Air Max 1 Breathe, Air Max 90 Breathe and Air Max Light Breathe are unveiled, each getting stripped down updates.
Designed to keep your feet free from the oppressive summer heat, the upcoming shoe draws insight from the on-the-go Brasilian lifestyle, in which one might find themselves on the beach one minute and pounding pavement the next.
The collection deconstructs iconic silhouettes, transforming its classic sneakers into ultra-breathable, lightweight shoes. The shoes have been stripped to their core essentials — layers of reinforcement removed and heavy materials jettisoned. Spacer mesh is used to create pockets of space between the upper materials to allow for increased airflow.
Innovations include taped seams, moisture-wicking linings, open-mesh uppers, elastic laces, soft heel counters, and natural motion tooling, combining to deliver iconic silhouettes true to their roots and built for summer. Contoured for comfort, the Nike Air Max Breathe Collection modernizes the summer wardrobe by making more with less.
The Air Max Breathe Collection will be available at stocklists and Nike.com on May 1.
