Nike Sportswear introduces the Nike Air Max Breathe Collection, designed to keep your feet free from the oppressive summer heat.

Thirty years strong, the Nike Air Max family gets better generation after generation. Air bags have seen many shapes, sizes and iterations. Uppers have been dressed in leather, canvas, suede, Hyperfuse, tape, Vac-tec and Engineered Mesh, updating each classic with modern technology to fulfill contemporary needs.

AIR MAX LIGHT BREATHE (Up top) a lighter option for fans of the Air Max 1, was designed with a combination phylon/polyurethane midsole to minimize weight. Building on the Air Max Light’s original design ideology of reducing weight, unnecessary layers are stripped from the upper construction and replaced with near-seamless open mesh.

To keep the shape of the Air Max Light intact, designers employed an innovative perforated foam layer in the rand to create a structure that maximizes ventilation without adding weight.

AIR MAX 90 BREATHE – Natural motion tooling adds a flexible forefoot to the traditional AM90 Air unit in the Air Max 90 Breathe for seamless movement. An open-mesh, no-sew upper reduces weight and promotes breathability, while a new soft heel counter and elastic lacing system allow for easy on-and-off wear.
