Things to make you wish 2015 would stop faffing around and hurry the hell up: a potential Oasis reunion at Glastonbury, a new Star Wars film without Jar Jar Binks, and, before all that, how about Nike’s latest Air Max?
Slated for an early year release, our first peek at its latest evolution, which you’ve probably spotted come with a funky and fully exposed Nike Air sole, suggest they may be set to put the spring into springtime.
What’s more, just look at those brilliant colour patterns, sparingly dotted across the fabrics with a marvellous streak of vivid colour-ways. It’s the real deal all right.
Then, of course, there are those other trademark hallmarks of Nike’s tech: Dynamic Flywire give stability, Engineered Mesh give lightness and a tape-seam construction ensures the shoe will perform in bad weather – no matter if you’re bounding between puddles at bus stops or mountainous ultra-marathons in the country, you’re covered with these ultra-light beauties.
So light is the new Air Max, in fact, the shoe has lost 50 grams compared to the current crop.
Though with a gluttonous festive period still ahead of us, we can’t promise we’ll be in similar shape when the shoe arrives in the New Year.
