direct descendants air max 360 era 1 Direct Descendants: The 360 Air Max Era

Regular Nike Sportswear releases keep classic Max runners front and center as the foundation of Beaverton’s heritage lineup.  Favorites the likes of the Air Max 1 and 95 have retroed in the original colorways several times along with countless new pairs that pop up seemingly every week.  NSW’s Air Max line still runs up through the 97 for most parts of the world and includes the occasional Air Max Plus over in Europe, which has the curious effect of making some of the newer pairs relatively less known.

The Air Max 2009 as of this writing is the only one of the 360-degree Max runners to have returned to store shelves, so you might not be familiar with the progression from that first truly full-length Air bag through today’s Flyknit Air Max and Air Max 2014.  With that in mind, let’s take the opportunity to look back over the past decade or so of Nike Air Max Running flagships, as we track the more recent evolution of the ‘History of Air’ by way of our new Direct Descendants series.

Nike Details the History of Air Max Sneakers

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.

Classics Revisited: Nike “Kashima Antlers” Pack (2006)

nike kashima antlers pack 2006 Classics Revisited: Nike Kashima Antlers Pack (2006)


Finishing off this week of bundles of Nike footwear here in Classics Revisited tied together by a distinct theme is the trio of Air Max releases from 2006 called the ‘Kashima Antlers’ Pack. This unique set was a tribute to the Kashima Antlers professional football club in Japan – the most successful club in the history of the Japan League Division 1 since its inception in 1993, but the origin of the Antlers club dates back to 1947. The Nike ‘Kashima Antlers’ Pack featured three significant models; the Air Max 95 and the Air Max 97, both of which are widely popular in Japan, and the Air Max 360, which debuted in late January of 2006. Of the three colorways, only the Air Max 360 is designed with the Kashima Antlers kit colors in mind (White, Black, and Red), but all three compositions capture a singular theme that were widely popular when the Kashima Antlers Pack was launched globally in late February.

The Air Max 95 features the pristine Gold and Royal colorway, using the Beige color as an accent on the upper mesh (Beige is on the official Kashima Antlers club crest). The Air Max 360 featured the widely popular laser detailing on the upper with Kashima Antlers FC written in Japanese on the tongue. The most popular and coveted of the entire Pack is the Air Max 97, which boasted the much-beloved elephant print on the upper with a teal-colored Max Air unit. The ’97 also featured Kashima Antlers branding on the tongue as well as on the heel pull-tab. Included in this special edition release was a custom tissue paper that lined the box as well as an envelope containing mini postcards of the world’s most significant football clubs – Man U. and Boca Jr’s to name a couple. Check out a gallery of all three from the ‘Kashima Antlers’ Pack below, and let us know if you’ve got any of these in your Air Max collection!
