The shoe sits atop a Nike Air Max 360 sole, which runs the entire length of the shoe. Other features including hits of metallic silver, as well as a breathable mesh tongue. No word yet as to a specific release date but stay tuned in for more information.
Nike went overboard in 1993 with the huge Air unit, fully visible from the back of the shoe. The Air Max 93 still remains a popular member of the Nike Air Max family. The 2006 Air Max 93’s most talked-about feature was its large 270-degree exposed Nike Air Unit. The Air Sole Unit contained more air and therefore provided greater protection. It was manufactured using a new process called blow moulding, which involved gas being injected through an external tube that forced plastic into a mould. The Air Max 93 was the first to have a coloured Air Unit. Meanwhile, the upper featured a sock-like fit similar to the Air Huarache.The model was reissued in 2003. In the same year, Nike produced an Escaped-influenced edition and Air Mowabb edition, the latter of which was only available in Europe. Numerous colourways have since been launched worldwide.
The Air unit went full length in 1997. The Air Max 97 offered maximum cushioning and style. This still is one of the most popular Nikes out there, re-issued numerous times around the world. Rumor has it that this shoe was originally going to be called the Air Total Max 3. This ultra modern-looking Air Max was inspired by the high-speed Japanese Bullet train.
