Nike-Air-Max-Breathe-Collection-1-600x399

Nike Sportswear’s making sure everyone’s feet stay cool for summer with the new Air Max 1 Breathe. They took the iconic ground breaking 30 year old model and reconstructed the shoe completely so that the shoe now allows cool air to flow through.

The Air Max model has been re modeled many times already, from leather and suede to VacTech and Engineered Mesh. The Breathe version takes the shoe down to its core with any extras removed.

“Spacer mesh is used to create pockets of space between the upper materials for increased air flow while open-mesh uppers take care of ventilation across the rest of the shoe. Taped seams, moisture-wicking linings and soft heel counters serve dual roles of holding the build together while letting air flow through.”

The Nike Air Max Breathe collection – consisting of the Air Max 1 seen here plus the Air Max Light and Air Max 90 silhouettes – will be on Nike.com and at Nike Sportswear retailers beginning May 1.
