As part of the Air Max’s 25th year anniversary celebrations, Nike has slimmed down the iconic ’87 flagship editions of the Air Max for the ladies. Nike’s latest premium collection, dubbed the Air Max Camo Pack, brings together some of the most sought after Air Max silhouettes and the latest in footwear innovation from the iconic brand.
Check out the top three releases from the Camo pack, hitting Nike stores across the country very soon.
Air Max 1 Comfort Premium Tape
I’ll be honest: Usually I love a bright red colourway, but on this particular sneaker, the red is more of a burgundy/cranberry colour mixed with shades of pink and for me, it just doesn’t work.
Colours aside, the Nike Air Max 1 Comfort Premium Tape is covered primarily in suede, and uses no-sew tape to mimic the look that’s delighted sneaker heads for decades. The Air Max unit also provides great cushioning and impact protection.
Air Max 90 Premium Tape
The silhouette of the Air Max 90 Premium Tape takes root from Nike running styles, but the modern colours and premium leather, twist this iconic casual wear style into the future. With the camouflage print popping up solely on the tape that outlines the seams of the sneaker, hints of atomic pink play a perfect highlight to the crush of armoury blue and slate that pops up.
The leather overlays help provide support and durability, and the sneakers feature rolled edges for a clean, streamlined silhouette. These are sure to be a hit when they finally find their way to Nike retailers but buyers beware as they are a Nike Womens’ release, if you are a guy it’s okay to be a bit jealous. Hehe.
Air Max Thea
Nike first introduced the Air Max Thea in a bright colourway calling it the ‘Flash Lime‘, which received a good amount of publicity. Going from bright to dark, Nike has been inspired by classic 90s styling and has dropped the sleek Air Max Thea Camo colourway, and remastered the sneaker with a lightweight, minimal design.
The Nike Air Max Thea has been given a fluid black and pink paint job, specifically for the ladies. A black textile upper with synthetic and leather panels keep this low top lightweight and breathable. A phylon midsole and visible air unit support the underrated style. A hot pink swoosh, hints of blue on the eyelets and outsole, and the lightly camouflaged toe box give this female model desirable detail.
Although I’ve never been a fan of the camouflage print, the print on the Air Max Thea is very subtle and very easy on my eyes. 🙂
