Nike’s Air Max technology celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2022. And while arguably lackluster, the milestone event gave way to several compelling styles of fan-favorite silhouettes as well as the launch of the Air Max Scorpion, the boldest design in the visible Air series yet.
Ahead of March 26, images of a special edition of the sneaker for Air Max Day 2023 have surfaced. The pair’s design maintains a standard construction throughout the upper and sole unit, with Flyknit up-top referencing multi-color propositions of the mid-2010s. Profile swooshes abandon their typical flush arrangement in favor of a puffy, cloud-like look that plastic into the Air Max concept well. The layered cushioning solution underfoot keeps things simple in a semi-transparent white tone, while the sock-liners feature collection-specific graphics depicting clouds, flowers, and a “3.26” date.
