The Nike Air Max 90 EM has the advantage of being constructed in the featherweight, extremely breathable Engineered Mesh. The Air Max 90 Premium CMFT EM takes it to another level, as just like the AF1 CMFT series with its LunarLon insert, these have a unique new insole addition. It appears that along with a traditional footbed, there’s a second option with a translucent gel pad that sits at the heel in place of the typical ‘NIKE AIR’ branding. Do you think this will be a norm for future CMFT releases? Definitely a funky way of punching up an already comfortable sneaker, so check out the photos below and head to your local Nike Sportswear retailer now because they released not long ago.

I guess they had to do something to make the shoe more comfortable. The air bubbles in the shoes of recent years have felt like walking on rocks. That's even with shoes that had the heel Max.
As for gel, I just didn't expect Nike to go the Asics route.
why do you need a different insole with gel in the heel? isn't the nike air bladder comfy enough? never had a pr of 90's(AM or EM) that needed extra gel for cushioning.
huh so I wasn't seeing ghosts when I saw the clear insoles... can anyone confirm these come with the extra soles in ALL released models that are on shelf right now? or just special ones in japan?
