nike air max history Nike Details the History of Air Max Sneakers

The Nike Air technology was one that had been floating around in Nike’s sole kits for years before the Air Max tooling made its debut. The brand knew that they had a cushioning platform superior to their competitors, but they just needed a way to show it off. You know the story from there: Tinker Hatfield visited the Georges Pompidou center in Paris and his revelation started a revolution. Wieden+Kennedy showed off the sneakers in the controversial “Revolution” spot and the blazing bright red sneakers started to show up on the feet of runners around the world.

nike free natural motion 02 Nike Inside Access: Natural Motion and Nike Free

Nike co-found Bill Bowerman said it’s all about the feet – not the shoes, and that ethos still guides a certain sector of Nike’s runners. That would be the Nike Free category, which is celebrating its ten-year anniversary in 2014 with the return of the original Nike Free silhouette. Of course the Swoosh has a long history of creating these sort of stripped down sneakers that begins way back with the Cortez in 1972 and stops along the way at Beaverton-design hallmarks like the Nike Huarache and the Presto. Continue reading to see some of the models that helped inform their legacy of Natural Motion and then read about each on Nike INC today.

Was the Air Jordan 5 Supposed to Retro in 1995?

air jordan 5 1995 sample 12 570x425 Was the Air Jordan 5 Supposed to Retro in 1995?

Air Jordan retros first happened back in 1994, when Michael’s first three sneakers were re-introduced and the Swoosh first realized how much mileage was still left in those classic models. The retro steam would pick up again at the end of the decade, but it looks like there was almost another edition amongst those mid-90s ones. Shown here is an Air Jordan 5 sample that was purportedly produced back in 1995. The sneakers feature the “Nike Air” embroidery on the back, the upside down “Air Jordan” script on the inside of the tongues, and some proper yellowing as evidence of their age (They’re also missing a little bit of paint on the midsoles). Continue reading for a better look at this strange Jordan 5 from 1995 and then get a look at the chance to own the pair from 7ad3jc on eBay.

nike air maestro flight 1 1992 08 Nike Basketball Inside Access: Nike Air Maestro Flight 1

Back in 1992 there was a key division amongst Nike Basketball’s on-court offerings. There was the “Force” line, designed for bulkier players, and there was the “Flight” line, intended for the athletes who attacked the hardwood with a faster style of play. Debuting that year and quickly becoming a hallmark of the line was the Nike Air Maestro Flight 1, a sneaker worn by luminaries like Scottie Pippen, Ron Harper and John Stockton during the 1992-93 season. Of course that wasn’t the only place you could spot the sneakers back then – a young Jason Kidd also donned them during his freshman year at Cal. Continue reading for some vintage shots of the sneaker, as well as a glance at the new Hyper Rev design that it helped inspire, and read more on this classic Nike Basketball silhouette over at Nike INC now.
