Given all the classic Nike models that have received Flyknit makeovers, your first thought might be along the lines of “wait a minute, hasn’t this shoe been out for years?” But actually, this is the first time that the genesis of the visible air revolution is decked out in the tech fabric.

Imagine pitching “a shoe with an air bubble in the heel”, or “a knit running shoe”. Before the Air Max or the Flyknit, you’d be laughed out of the building. Now, you can find countless variations and offspring all over the world.
Outfitting the Air Max that started it all with the latest in shoe construction technology? Most people would say, it’s about time.
