In 1987, Nike launched one of their most innovative and groundbreaking designs, the Nike Air Max. Known now to some as the Air Max 87 and to others as the Air Max 1, the first sneaker to feature a visible Air cushioning unit in the heel set the direction for countless designs that use Nike's most popular technology. Tinker Hatfield's design of the Air Max 1 was inspired by the Le Centres George Pompidou in Paris. The center, famous for its "inside out" design is what Hatfield had in mind when taking the Air Max cushioning from hidden beneath the foam of the midsole, to being a part of the visual aesthetics of the shoe's design.
Nike Max Air
The maximum in impact cushioning, is designed to take brutal, repetitive impacts and minimize their effects on the body and your performance. Air Max units are made through a technique called “blow-molding”, allowing for the greatest volume of Nike Air without weakening the Air-Sole unit. Duel-pressure cushioning addresses the need for protection and rear foot stability. The hallmark of the Air Max technology is a visible air unit in the heel. The Air Max provides athletes with full-length impact protection.
