Nike Training offered a ton of chunky-soled, Max Air-cushioned crosstrainers in the latter part of the 90s. Models like the Air Griffey Max 1 are typical of the aggressive style and the Nike Air Butane Max comes through with the same look. These have been overshadowed for years and will likely remain a relative sleeper with the wide variety of fresh and retro trainers on the way, but you can’t deny the appeal of this simple colorway done up in a rich tumbled leather. It serves to give a premium feel to the Butane’s signature side panel ‘flames’, and you can see more images after the jump. Let us know what you think of this long lost trainer and grab a pair today from a Nike Sportswear retailer like Eastbay.
