The History Behind the Air Max:

It all started back in 1987, when Nike introduced the first Air Max shoe, the Air Max 1. It was designed by Tinker Hatfield and revolutionised the sneaker game forever with its visible air bubble technology. The idea behind the Air Max was to provide cushioning and support to athletes. So, yes, these sneakers did start off as a piece of footwear for athletes, but in recent years, they have developed into a unique fashion statement. The visible air bubble, which is located in the midsole of the shoe, allowed wearers to see and feel the cushioning in action. With each new release of the Air Max came advancements in comfort, performance, and style. To this day, Air Max is worth up to billions of dollars, and this figure will only continue to grow and grow.

The Best of the Best:

The Air Max 95s are one of the most popular designs of the Air Max. The design of the Air Max 95 is very distinctive and is sure to make a fashion statement. Another design that was especially popular during the early 2000s was the Air Max 1s. These kicks are slowly making their way back into style after the height in popularity throughout the early 2000s.

How to Celebrate:

Sneakerheads across the globe will be celebrating this exciting day by repping their favourite pair of Nike Air Max, and you can do the same.
