The Nike Air Max Light Is Finally Back

The Nike Air Max Light Is Finally Back

Joining a barrage of resurgent retro Nike runners from the 1990s will be the oft-forgotten about Air Max Light silhouette that actually debuted in 1989. Clearly laying the groundwork for iconic creations the likes of the Air Max 1 and the Air Max 90, this pivotal piece of Swoosh brand history is ready to receive the homage it rightly deserves in an original color scheme. While the Light has been brought back to shelves in the past, the market was never as ready for its return as it is now, as we have already seen models like the Air Max Deluxe find their footing in today’s sneaker landscape that puts a heavy emphasis on vintage and retro designs. Dressed in a clean combination of Sport Red, navy, and white, this classically color blocked Air Max offering is set to touch down at select retailers around the globe on January 10th. Grab a detailed look at this OG version below and stay tuned for updates regarding the likely release of its Nay Blue-adorned counterpart.
