The Air Max ‘Essential’ models are a testament to the enduring popularity of these classic runners. By making use of materials, like premium leather, that wouldn’t usually be found on a running shoe, Nike is letting the fashion appeal of the shoe take center stage.
On this particular model, you would be forgiven for guessing that ‘essential’ referred to the grey, black, and red colorway. The grey and black are very much in tune with the sophisticated, universally neutral colorway of the OG model, while the red tones down the traditional volt in favor of a red, that, while still vibrant, offers a more subtle take on the iconic runner.
