Nike Air Max 200: The Next Evolution
The Nike Air Max 200 joins the swoosh clad ranks
When one of the first trainers you ever made is selling for world-record breaking amounts we think it’s a pretty good indication that you know a thing or two when it comes to putting together some not too shabby footwear. Of course, it’s not like we needed anymore evidence from Nike especially not with their verging on intimidating lineup of culturally embedded sneaker silhouettes that include timeless classics such as the Air Max 1, 180, 95 and so forth. So, in the interest of not dwelling on the past too much or rehashing what is by now common knowledge amongst the sneaker orientated, we’d like to introduce you to the next step in Nike’s unrelenting journey to take air infused midsoles to their very limits.
Known as the Nike Air Max 200 this newest addition to the Air Max family combines some of the best bits from past and present Nike models with a hearty dose of new-wave advancement, resulting in a silhouette that is not only unique in its own right but feels wholly familiar at the same time. With uppers consisting primarily of mesh, that contours to the foot for improved breathability and comfort, the trainer boasts additional overlays to reinforce the foot and a TPU frame to keep things lightweight. Retaining a more streamlined, sleeker and sport-inspired appearance, the Nike Air Max 200 utilises a contrasting patterned-design with hits of yellow, green and red to the heel and sides for a generous helping of visual depth.
Below the trainers re-imagines the classic tubular technology sporting Nike’s biggest air unit to date alongside soft cushlon foam and a rubber outsole for exceptional levels of support, grip and return with a heel pull tab, padded tongue and embroidered branding bringing things to a tasteful, street-ready close. The Nike Air Max 200 launches both online and in store 01/08/19.
