NIKE AIR MAX CLASSICS WEEK

Moving forward with this week’s Classic Revisited is one of the many “cult” Air Max hits that have spilled out in the 1990’s – the Nike Air Max Deluxe. Unlike yesterday’s featurette of the Air Max2, which focused on the introduction of the advanced multi-chambered Air unit, the Air Max Deluxe was more of a marvel of design; it utilized the same full-length Air Max unit that was developed for the Air Max 97, but the upper of the Deluxe was one of the most visually stunning of the decade. The construction along was unlike anything Nike had done with its previous Runners; instead of stitched leather panels, the Air Max Deluxe took a ‘seamless’ approach in welding the clothed upper with the TPU exoskeleton, which provided coverage on the toe and the collar of the shoe. The Deluxe also gained its unique personality with the dotted-line scales and the unique graphic on the upper. Many considered the Deluxe as the ‘big brother’ to the Air Max 97 before Tuned Air and Alpha Project designs overtook the Air Max legacy. More of this amazing Air Max Classic below, so take a look and stay tuned for more Air Max Runner throwbacks tomorrow!
