Jordan Max 200 is released exclusively in men’s sizing. But with the classic sneaker silhouette and retro crossbreed layout of this shoe, for those women who definitely want to cop this, it is best to carefully go through the site’s sizing guide for a more accurate fit.

On the sidewalls are transparent textiles that house a flexible cage. This flexible cage connects to the lace loops that secure one’s feet for added steadiness.

Textile-lined padded collar and tongue provide ankle and feet cushioning and support.

Taking inspiration from the stylish AJ4 and AM200, thinking of ways to wear the Jordan Max200 exceeds the existing polished designs of both models. 

With tonal uppers on top of the signature bespeckled midsole, achieving a sleek yet casual look means donning a pair of gray joggers, a slim-fitted open jacket over a plain white tee.

A nod to the netting on the Jordan 4 is the transparent textile along the sides that imprint the Air 200 technology.

Mixing both brands logos, the Nike Air and Jumpan are found on the heel counter and tongue patch, respectively. Below the infamous Jumpan, is the Max-200 branding as well.

A trend that Nike started is the inclusion of an ornamental shoelace tag that is visible on this crossbreed lace-up trainer through a transparent rubber tube.

The first Air Jordans were released in 1985 when basket player Michael Jackson has started to make a name for his almost unbelievable swiftness and drive. Released in the OG BRED colorway did not come without controversy. It violated the association’s rules generating a $5,000 fine. 

Much like the eponymous Jordan, Nike supported its athlete and started a culture in the sneaker industry.

Meanwhile, the fairly new Air Max 200 comes from Nike’s sought-after Air Max line. And just like the other models from the collection, AM200 is among the most-coveted pair to today.

Early in 2020, Nike decided to infuse the historical details of AJ4 and the new revolutionary 200% more comfort of the Max 200 Air unit cushioning.

Sickening colorways of Fire Red, Black/Volt Green, and White/Challenge Red have already been released.

  • Future releases of Pure Money (all-white), Laney (baby blue and yellow pastel), Altitude Green, BRED, and Triple Red. 
  • Collaboration with Paris Saint-Germain was also released early in 2020.
  • In commemoration with 54th Super Bowl, Nike also released a Miami-inspired special edition Super Bowl pack.
