You don’t have to be a sneakerhead to know that Nike Air Max sneakers are some of the most beloved styles according to Nike evangelists. These babies are equipped with all the best old-school finishes — most notably, the large air cushioning at the heel — so they have a distinctly 1980s and 1990s vibe. Not a huge surprise, because Nike originally debuted this shoe in 1987 after one of the company’s shop architects sketched it up. The same architect went onto design many of the classic Nike Air Jordans.
If you know much about Nike sneaker history, then you know that the Air Max has evolved a bit over the years. The original style, the Air Max 1, displayed the shoe’s cushioning unit, but it wasn’t until the 1990s debut of the Air Max 180 that the classic air cushioning unit became a major design element. We simply can’t imagine the Air Max without the air, so we’re glad that most of the contemporary styles showcase this unique feature. According to the designer, who just so happened to be an aeronautical engineer, the air cushioning technology helps cushion impact, so it’s perfect for playing basketball and other athletic endeavors.
