The Air max shoes are a brand of the most popular shoe manufacturer Nike. The Nike Air Max was the first shoe ever to have a visible air unit which was highlighted by a window in the mid sole that allowed one to see right into the shoe. The Nike Air Max was at first the top shoe preferred for running in the sneaker world, However Nike never anticipated the that people would accept the Air Max as just another casual sneaker. When you hear the word Air Max,what comes into mind? For most people around the world only the 1990 Air Max comes to mind. This has been a common misconception around the world and only a few number of people actually know that there are a lot of other shoes in the Nike Air max series. Below is a list of the top 5 Air Max of all time, they are not arranged in any particular order.
1. AIR MAX 93
These shoes were first released in 1993 and were nicknamed the “Nike Air Max 270″ due to their exposed 270 degrees of air. The Air Max 93 had more air than any other prior model units, they provided their customers with the most comfortable heel cushion. They were also the first Nike running shoes with a colored air unit, all the previous models had a white air unit. All the other shoes in the Air Max series after the Air Max 93 have a colored air unit as part of the design. They retail at about $77 which can change upwards or downwards depending on shoe size or purchase store.
2. AIR MAX BW
These shoes were released back in 1991 and were nicknamed the “Air Max Classics”. The “BW” actually stands for the striking ‘Big Window’ bubble at the heel of the shoe. The Air Max BW’s classic design that is heavily borrowed from the Air Max 90 is still a top seller and is released in many other colors over the years. They retail at $55 which can change upwards or downwards depending on shoe size or purchase store.
3. AIR MAX LIGHT
These shoes were released in 1989 and were nicknamed the “Air Max II” . Just as the name suggests,it dropped weight by changing the mid sole foams. The Air Max light has always maintained a very low profile among the Air Max franchise,it was initially buried for decades until Nike resurrected it in the year 2007. They retail at $84 which can change upwards or downwards depending on shoe size or purchase store.
4. AIR MAX PLUS
These shoes were released in 1998 and were nicknamed “TN or Tuned 1″. They were not accepted by many people as many regarded them as scary while others regarded them as sacred. There is nothing much to write home about in regards to this particular shoe except for its highly prized thuggish personality in certain areas in Europe. They retail at $55 which can change upwards or downwards depending on shoe size or purchase store.
5. AIR MAX 90
These shoes were released in 1990 and were nicknamed “Air Max III”. They have been the most sold units of the Air Max series,they still continue to dominate the sneakers market and have been competing with other notable brands in the sneaker world. These shoes are believed to be the only type of Air Max by many people around the world.
