The combination of Nike’s Flyknit and full-length Air Max cushioning has been a major hit, and it looks like the brand isn’t ceasing production of the shoe any time soon. The Flyknit Air Max hits the shelves in another new colorway this spring, Chlorine Blue, which we get a preview of here today. The Flyknit upper consist of a mix of light blue and purple for a perfect poolside look, while black takes care of the accents and a clear outsole matches the air bubble. The Flyknit Air Max “Chlorine” is arriving now at select Nike Running retailers.
NIKEiD is about a different kind of exclusivity in that while whatever design one makes for himself is truly unique and close to a “one of one” as one could get, the option to purchase it is nearly infinite. HTM of course is all about that “limited” mystique, but in an unprecedented move, Nike just released the Air Max 1, Air Max 95, and Flyknit Air Max with special edition HTM options. Granted, none of the three silhouettes exist as HTM collaborations and each respective model pertains to one of the three designers, so it looks like there is no opportunity to re-create a classic. Head to NIKEiD to make your own and share your designs on social media with hashtag #SneakerNews.
The Nike Flyknit Air Max has done a marvelous job combining two of Nike’s greatest technological advancements from completely different eras. There’s the almost three-decade-old Air Max bottom, as the visible air unit is expanded to the entirety of the base with a 360 degree air bag. The translucent finish has always made that feature all the more impressive and head-turning, and when paired with the simplicity of an all-woven Flyknit upper, the Flyknit Air Max manages to captivate both a newer and old crowd alike. Today we get a preview of two upcoming women’s Multi-Color options. While the signature orange and volt Multi look is skipped over, here combinations of blue, teal, and purple create a pastel finish perfect for the upcoming change of season. Expect each women’s exclusive colorway to hit retailers this Spring 2016. More photos below.
