Previously only seen in Europe as part of Nike’s Metro Collection, it looks like the Air Max Zenith will finally be showing up in the U.S. very soon. The shoe takes its inspiration from some classic Nike models, with the Air Max 1 being the most recognizable element. The Air Max Zenith simplifies the Air Max 1 design to create a sleeker silhouette with a stylish look. For starters, the shoe will be released in tonal red and black colorways, both with clean white midsoles, sections of patent leather and a textured material on the mid panels behind the Swoosh. These should be arriving at select Nike retailers soon as a part of the Fall ’09 roster, so we’ll make sure to keep you informed on specific release info and additional colorways. Via HighSnobiety.
