Air Max Tavas

After taking a look at the black & white colorway of the Nike Air Max Tavas a few days ago, the Nike Sportswear silhouette returns with a little more color for the new year.

This time around the Tavas gets done up in a predominantly white upper with black detailing on the Swoosh branding and outsole. The taped mesh upper is then finished off with a bold patch of Paramount Blue on the heel and heel pull tab.

The latest colorway of the Nike Air Max Tavas takes the classic and simple route as we see the silhouette covered in a black & white color scheme.

Looking at the Nike runner we can see that a combination of no-sew mesh and Hyperfuse get together on the upper which has been colored predominantly in black. White accents are then present on the branding, heel, and the Air Max rubber midsole.

Following its action red finish, the Nike Air Max Tavas is presented in more subdued iteration for the season, as it’s now treated in midnight navy/neutral grey.

Essentially covering its mesh and synthetic upper, tonal black accents adorn the side panels, while the heel is defined by its perforated overlay. Accents of white are prominent on the Swoosh branding across its side panels, which all rests atop a clean rubber sole unit as well.

Recently offered in cool grey, the Nike Air Max Tavas receives a more vibrant finish to perfectly suit the warm season.

Draped in tonal red across the sneaker’s mesh and synthetic construction, the model is reinforced with a tonal nubuck heel overlay with perforations to increase breathability. All resting atop a crisp, white midsole with touches of black on the frontal and rear portion of the outsole, the visible bubble unit in the heel bears a minty green hue for additional vibrance.

The Nike Air Max Tavas returns in another perfect Fall colorway, as it’s now doused in grove green.

Composed of breathable mesh and suede for its upper with no-sew overlays for a modern look and lightweight breathability, the sneaker is further reinforced with a perforated heel overlay rendered in contrasting black for a complementing touch. Additional hits of black adorn the Swooshes on the side panels and portion of its outsole, while it’s all juxtaposed against a crisp white rubber sole unit.

Air Max 90

Perhaps the sneaker with the longest name in Nike’s catalog right now, the Nike Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Flyknit, is ready for summer in a cool new tropical shade of Hyper Turquoise. The update to the update of the Air Max 90 built in Flyknit features its woven upper in the bright shade of teal with dark grey mixed into certain portions around the midfoot and toe, layered with synthetic material for the mudguard and branding accents. Being an ‘Ultra’ iteration of the Air Max 90, the sole features a lightweight cored-out design with extra foam to keep you comfy all summer long.

Nike returns with another new colorway for its updated classic, the Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Flyknit.

The sneaker sports a clean white Flyknit upper, alongside a matching midsole and a red mudguard, while Swoosh branding is also found on the sides, tongue, insoles and outsole to complete the look.

You need a fearless independent mindset to realize your creative vision. Tinker Hatfield knew it when he provoked havoc in Nike’s office with his Air Max design. And the guys we met in Berlin know it too as they face the challenges of everyday to realize their goals and do what they do

Even as a city, Berlin reflects this creative drive. A place that was torn apart by almost a hundred years of conflict and yet which is now a creative capital of Europe. People didn’t believe the city could rise from the ashes, but it did. Its legendary live-and-let-live attitude now attracts people from all over the world, either for long-term living or for a short creative bout. The city did the unexpected. Its people had the visionary mindset to see the dream through.

Berlin, and Europe in general, has a connection to Air Max. Whereas U.S. streets had Jordans (thanks to basketball), European cities took to Air Max. As we hit the 30th anniversary mark since the sneaker’s first release, we partnered with Nike and styled the Swoosh’s new Air Max 90 Ultra 2.0 Flyknit on the three Berliners – DJ and producer Peggy Gou, photographer Shirin Siebert, and tattooist and producer David Frisch.

Air Max 2018

One of the most popular Air Max 97 releases of 2017 came by way of a collaboration with UK grime sensation, Skepta. A tribute to the Air Tuned Max, his 97 Ultra also payed homage to Moroccan colors with hints of an iridescent glow throughout the upper. Skepta recently took to his Intagram live to tease another potential collaborative effort with the Swoosh in the form of an SK Air Part 2 drop. While nothing has been confirmed yet, it is certainly fair to begin speculating which silhouette could be involved in this potential release.

While last year’s offering utilized the Air Max sneaker celebrating its anniversary, it is certainly plausible that the Air Max 98 or the Air Max Plus will be involved this time around – as 2018 is a celebratory year for both shoes. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for updates regarding an SK Part 2 collaboration and tell us which silhouette you would want to see featured.

The Nike Air Max 97 celebrated its 20th Anniversary in 2017. One of the most popular releases for the occasion was a collaboration with UK’s rapper Skepta. An Air Max 97 that was inspired by the 1999 Air Tuned Max.

In 2018, the both the Nike Air Max 98 and Nike Air Max Plus will be celebrating their 20th Anniversary. Recently, Skepta hinted at another Nike Air Max collaboration for 2018.

While the model is still unknown, we wouldn’t be surprised if it will be either the Air Max 98 or Air Max Plus. Stay tuned to Sneaker Bar for more updates on the Skepta x Nike Air Max Part 2 collaboration.

The Skepta x Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 was considered on of Nike’s best collabs of 2017. The collab with the English artist was so good, it now looks like the even more Skepta x Nike Air Max collabs will be releasing in 2018.

Although not yet confirmed, being that both the Nike Air Max 98 and Nike Air Max Plus will both be celebrating their 20th Anniversary this year, don’t be surprised if the next Skepta collabs are centered around those two models.

Air Max 2017

As a follow up to the recent “Team Red” release, Nike Sportswear has debuted the Nike Air Max 2017 Cargo Khaki for the fall season.

This release features a full Olive Green upper paired with Black detailing on the inner liner, laces and Nike Swoosh logos. Completing the look is a full-length visible Air Max unit and icy outsoles.

Air Max 2014

The Nike Air Max 2014 is definitely one of the brighter releases from the series. The Engineered Mesh covered model merges four different colors, but is highlighted by the standout hyper jade and hyper grape tones, and also features flashy add-ons like a reflective silver Nike swoop, and a clear cover over the air bubble sole. With the year coming to a close, this may be one of the last Air Max 2014 releases we see, especially with the Air Max 2015 set to launch towards the end of November.

Is that a “Sprite” look for the Nike Air Max 2014? The sneakers might let a little bit too much black in to be considered of that ilk, but the fade flowing across the bottom’s bubble at the very least looks rather like that Bron combo. We had this pair pegged as a June one previously, but it’s now July and they’re still scarce as far as US shops go.

It appears that Hiroshi Fujiwara has his hands in yet another special edition Nike project. Gathered here are a handful of images of a Nike Air Max 2014 that he’s been touting as of late, one that we’re assuming will arrive at retail under his fragment design imprint. The shoes keep things pretty clean in terms of the upper with an all-white approach, while the midsole has a colorful gradient going on.

Featuring a White perforated leather upper with Metallic Gold accents that has been releasing overseas with a stateside release to come in the next couple weeks. Keep it locked to Sneaker Bar for further updates.

A few days ago, Sneaker News showed you an upcoming Air Max 2013 LTHR wiht a grey upper and Volt Air bubble. Here’s another one with a neutral upper and Nike’s signature neon yellow shade, but instead of grey on the casual Leather edition, this Nike Air Max+ 2013 sticks to the Hyperfuse-welded performance build and switches to a brownish green in the form of Dark Loden. This particular color combo has been an NSW go-to for a while now so it’s interesting to see it on this cutting edge speed machine

This new colorway of the Nike Air Max+ 2012 is getting ready to be released this November, coming in this Autumn inspired Cargo Khaki colorway. As one of the newer silhouettes to the Nike line, the low top sneaker features a Hyperfuse upper with mesh sleeves for maximum breathability and fit.

Finishing off the design are pure platinum elements, as well as a full-length Nike Air Max unit, which sports a translucent look.

Joining the men’s pair which featured a Black upper with Vivid Orange, Gamma Blue, and Dark Turquoise, here is an official look at the women’s Nike Air Max 2011 from this year’s N7 collection.

Just like the men’s pair, the women’s version of the Air Max 2011 comes with a fuse and mesh upper but this time done predominantly in White with Atomic Pink, Bright Mango, and Dark Turquoise accents. Atomic and Bright Mango make the strongest statement as they can be seen on the laces, inner liner, and the full-length 360-degree visible air unit.

In addition to the Air Max 2016, the Nike Air Max 2011 consists as the other notable pair from the Summer 2016 N7 collection.
