Nike Air Max Light OG

Initially launched in 1989, Nike’s Air Max Light makes a highly-anticipated return this season. A silhouette that worked upon the ground-breaking Air mechanics of the original, enhancing it further to create an even lighter design.

What could be easily mistaken for a hybrid creation of the Air Max 1 and Air Max 90, the Max Light was only second release from Nike to feature Air technology within the midsole. Originally marketed as the Air Max II (2), the runner was later renamed Air Max Light due to the construction process of the sole unit, which resulted in a substantial weight difference to that of its predecessor.

Screaming with throwback appeal, Nike delivers a classic Air Max design relevant for the present day. Arriving in an OG colourway, the Max Light’s upper boasts a base of white breathable mesh and light grey suede, overlaid by contrasting black panels to the mudguard and side panel Swooshing. Vibrant bursts of colour arrive on the ‘Sport red’ synthetic eyestays and cushioned sock-liner, while signature Air Max branding sits on the heel and tongue tab, signing off the model is signature fashion. Below, a comfortable foam midsole houses the brand’s forward-thinking visible Air bubble technology in the heel, coupled with a rubber outsole for ultimate traction.

The Nike Air Max Light OG will be available via the size? website and in size? stores on Thursday 10th January priced at £110.
