Last year Nike unveiled the Air Max 2009 in its fully uncaged Air glory. It featured Flywire technology with a super-breathable infrastructure that allowed the Air Max 2009 to be one of Nike’s most successful shoes of the 21st Century; calling it a ‘tough act to follow’ would be an egregious understatement. But given Nike’s penchant for stretching boundaries and progressive design, fans of the swoosh should have nothing to worry about.
Check out these images of the Nike Air Max 2010, set to release in the upcoming fall. it features the same full-length Air unit from the 2009 with a redesigned upper; Flywire stays on board but aims its focus more on tarsals of the feet, while a mesh toe encapsulates the entire front end of the foot for added breathability and flexibility. The upper design of the Air Max 2010 is very similar to that of the Tailwind 2010 but undoubtedly earns its individualistic persona. Check out the images and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more colorways and release info.
