|It was 1987 when the world first, err, ran into the Nike Air Max. The original was by Tinker Hatfield, actually an architect who started at Nike Nike Air Max 97 Femme designing stores but eventually segued into sneakers (he’s now the company’s vice president of special projects and design).
Air Max is one of Nike’s most celebrated sneaker franchises, but the running shoes haven’t come without criticism. To reinvigorate the line, the brand Adidas Eqt Support Adv Mujer will rely on its upcoming Air VaporMax release.
“Today’s Air Max is one of our heavier and stiffer products that we have in the line, so we wanted to really make [the Air VaporMax] as flexible as Nike Free and as lightweight as some of our racing product,” Brett Holts, VP of Adidas Superstar Mujer Blancas Nike Running Footwear, told Footwear News last week at the brand’s headquarters in Beaverton, Ore.
What separates the Air VaporMax from past Air Maxes is its design. The shoe features a Flyknit upper atop an air bag with an integrated outsole, which reduces the number of layers between the foot and the acclaimed Air unit.
“Because Adidas Zx Flux Womens of the constraints of some of the technologies, there have been iterative evolutions of our product line,” said John Hoke, VP of Nike Global Design. “But this to me feels like a revolution. It’s a step change — because of new Nike Air Max 95 Womens manufacturing, because of Flyknit. This defines now and the future of a new aesthetic.”
Although the shoe was designed for serious runners, Nike knows aesthetics are just as — if not more — important to today’s consumer.

“We wanted to make sure we were coming at this from a pure performance lens. … We also know Air Max is a lifestyle choice,” Holts said. “If a serious runner wants to Nike Air Max 2017 Donna use it as a primary running shoe, that’s what this is designed to do. If somebody wants to wear it as just an expression, that’s fine, too.”
