Eastbay's selection of Nike Air Max shoes rivals the rest, from the Air Max 90 to the Air Max Plus. Eastbay's offers classic colors and retro styles for sneaker collectors and fashion lovers alike. The Air Max was first released as a running shoe in 1987, displaying a visible Air® cushioning unit to the world. That little transparent window was a hit with the crowds, and ended up with numerous colors and fabric combinations over the years, including the first all-leather Air Max released in 1988. Through the various re-issued styles and elite collaborations, the Nike Air Max has stood the test of time and continues to rank as a top sneaker style today.
The Nike Air Max 90 was introduced in 1990 with bold colors and a highly sought-after design that continued Nike's success with the Air Max line. We can't forget about the Air Max 95 and Air Max 97. Two retro styles with the same technology in common, but very different looks. The 95s were inspired by the human body; the spine is represented by the midsole, the muscle fibers are shown in the panels and the skin is displayed through the mesh upper fabric. This was something totally unique and made the shoe stand out from the rest. The Air Max 97 took a different approach to sneaker design with a very modern-looking style and eye-catching colors. Several retro versions of the Air Max 97 have been re-issued through the years, all displaying Nike's full-length Air® unit for a new spin on their famous technology. It was originally released as a running shoe and has been redesigned many times since its introduction in 1998. Like the other Air Max shoes, the Air Max Plus continues the legacy of the Nike Air Max line with modern updates and new colors without losing sight of their vintage roots. When it comes to the Air Max collection of shoes, what you see is what you get - you see the visible Air® unit, and you get the comfort and cushioning of a legend.
