The Air Max flagship series from Nike Running featured Flywire uppers during 2009 and ’10 and switched to Hyperfuse this year, and it looks like lightweight and super-breathable beats ‘just’ lightweight, as the Nike Air Max+ 2012 will again feature a two-layered Fuse upper. The silhouette’s rounded lines will remind some of the Free Run 2, but you get considerably more cushioning thanks to a heel-to-toe Max Air cushion. If the universe ends next year along with the Mayan calendar, does the Air Max 2012 represent going out on top, or was one of its predecessors more impressive in your eyes?

I'm a big AM fan, and I've been picking up at least 2 pairs every year, but I might pass on these. I'd kill for a re-release of the 2009's, though. These are trash compared to those.
The pattern on the side is a bit too overdesigned for my taste, simplify it a bit and you've got an alright shoe there. Let's face it though, Nike shoe design peaked from about 87 - 91. AM1, AM90, AM180 and Huarache LE's will never be bettered. The technology might improve but everything Nike makes now is a bit ugly and soulless.
These are dope, they're completely different save the mid & out soles. Young heads always showin there age...
boring as heck .. they look like the new free runs with an airmax sole .. where is the creativity nike cmon the air max is one of the most important annual models and this is all u got sheesh
damn, you dont have to agree with me, but you don't have to be an asshole about it.. my comment is +3, while yours has one. who needs to open their eyes now?
