A running staple since it hit the shelves in 1987, the Tinker Hatfield-designed Nike Air Max changed the game with the premiere of a visible Max Air unit. Now the coveted cushioning wasn't a mystery – you could look and actually see the cloud-like air pocket. Model after model of Air Max sneakers have been released in the years since, including such iconic models as the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Air Max 95 and the Air Max 97. Some of the latest Air Maxes include the innovative VaporMax, Air Max 270, Air Max 720 and Air Max 2090. Fresh and oh-so comfortable, these Nike Air Max models offer versatile, timeless design like the Men's Nike Air Max 270 for sneakerheads and everyday wearers alike.
On March 26, 1987 Nike released the Air Max 1 featuring the first-ever visible Air unit. The now iconic Nike Max Air technology has continued to evolve and captivate the sneaker community. Three decades later, the Swoosh continues to celebrate Air Max Day by releasing new Air Max shoes or limited-edition silhouettes dropping on March 26th each year.
