It’s fairly common for Nike Running to issue models like last year’s Tailwinds to stand alongside the Air Max flagship series, and in recent years with the implementation of synthetics like Flywire and Hyperfuse, we’ve seen casually-oriented leather editions, but 2011 marks the first time in quite a while that a new series was created to keep pace with the Maxes. Check out the Nike Air Max Alpha 2011, a model whose Hyperfuse upper and massive heel airbag will draw comparisons to the Air Max 2011, but one whose lines are distinct not only when compared to the 2011s, but nearly every other running shoe Nike has produced to this point. Click through to get acclimated to the new design then grab a pair from select retailers like New York’s Extra Butter.
