Nike’s new Engineered Mesh textile is ready to take over the Sportswear heritage of Running footwear as we get a first look at Nike Air Max EM ‘Sunrise Pack’ in its entirety. Inspired by an early-80′s set of the Nike Running called the ‘Flame’ Pack, which featured the Nike Omega, Mulyr, Metro, and Track Racer, the Sunrise Pack features the entire History Of Air line-up done in Engineered Mesh style. Concordantly, we also get a first look at the Air Classic BW, Air 180, and Air Max 2009 built in this style, so check out the gallery of images below and look out for these at Nike Sportswear retailers this Spring.

Following up on the Hyperfuse trend of the past couple of years, Nike is again remixing some of its most beloved Nike Air Max silhouettes with a brand new technology. That would be Engineered Mesh, a perforated, proprietary material that allows designers to zone out different sections of the sneaker that require more or less flexibility. The Nike Air Max 1, Nike Air Max 90, Nike Air Max 95, and the Nike Air Max 97 are all set to hit in January of 2013 in a group of OG colorways made futuristic by the EM designation.

Nike’s Air Max Reinvented

December 27th, 2012 by | 1 comment

nike air max reinvented Nikes Air Max Reinvented

We’ve written thousands of words about the Nike Air Max running series here on Sneaker News.  Not even the most articulate sequences can fully convey the utter perfection that happens when groundbreaking technology performs great, looks even better and catches on at the exact right time.  That feeling you get when admiring one of Tinker Hatfield’s early gamechangers, Sergio Lozano’s iconic 95 or Christian Tresser’s spacey 97 — it’s the kind of magic Beaverton relives with the introduction of the Hyperfuse-equipped Nike Air Max+ 2013 and the Sportswear division’s Engineered Mesh, and they’ve channeled a bit into a dope new animated video you can see in full after the jump.

Nike Air Max 97 EM “600K”

nike air max 97 engineered mesh 600k Nike Air Max 97 EM 600K

Just as the Hyperfuse edition showed, this new Engineered Mesh update proves once again that the Air Max 97 deserves praise for being ahead of its time.  Just look at how seamlessly it integrates the new lightweight ventilation on the Nike Air Max 97 EM, with a ‘Silver Bullet’ colorway perhaps the most natural extension yet of the soon to be sixteen year-old silo and the forthcoming purplish Blackend Blue edition with ticked laces to match the trail-ish speckled midsole.  This new look has a ’600K’ note on the sockliner that might tie it in with a Brazilian race Nike has sponsored in recent years, but the timing based on previous events isn’t a perfect match for these January releases, so stay tuned for more details.  Familiar and fresh further intermingle in more photos after the jump and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for release info on these 2013 AM97EMs.

Joining its OG Air Max brethren in the EM transformation is the Air Max 97 in the standard ‘Silver Bullet’ colorway. The 97s have displayed the most unique use of Engineered Mesh, serving as the primary base of the shoe (which, we should mentioned, was already a mesh material) with a distinct pattern giving the ‘performance’-anchored design an unprecedented visual appeal. Like all the other Air Max EM models, the ‘Silver Bullet’ 97 EM is headed for a release this January at retailers worldwide, so flip through the detailed gallery below for a better look and let us know if you think Engineered Mesh on the 97 is a good fit.

Nike Air Max 97 Premium “Blackend Blue”

The Air Max 97 is already Nike Sportswear’s most mesh-heavy classic runner, so pairing this track-inspired design with even more breathable speed is only going to make it better. The Nike Air Max 97 Premium pictured above features Nike’s all new Engineered Mesh material that, like the leather tracks that surround it, are dipped in the purplish Blackend Blue shade. The shift to a more dynamic mesh along with two-tone ticked laces and a speckled midsole gives these quite a lot of depth for what is on paper a simple purple/white design, and you can see more photos below for this February 2013 release.

Prepare for Engineered Mesh to be an ongoing trend within the Air Max classics genre, because on top of the OG and new colorways of EM-built Air Maxes, there’s a ‘pack’ featuring the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Air Max 95, and Air Max 97 coming our way. All four colorways feature a orange-to-yellow gradient effect on the Engineered Mesh upper to achieve the effect of a sunset, with black nubuck mudguards amounting to the contrast on the upper. Expect these to arrive during the Summer 2013 season, so check out all four after the jump and let us know what you think about the use of this contemporary Engineered Mesh on older models.
