It's, like, the most expensive line for their running shoes, but they're really comfortable.
It’s all similar to the sole of the Air Max 2015… The Air unit is similar to those soles back then.
The shoes manage to satisfy in all of the most important categories, including comfort, support, and appearances.
Nikeis changing things up a little for the latestNike Air Max 2016release though, as they’ve covered up the “Air” with a sleek metallic silver midsole.
As with many of the previous styles , the Nike Air Max 2016 is not much of a running shoe but more of a casual sneaker, recommended by its cool looks, cushioning and overall comfort it offers.
I just think it's a little bit expensive… Otherwise, I think they look pretty solid.
- Nike introduces only a few changes in the 2016 model of the Air Max. Avid fans of this line will notice the slight change in the location and setup of the Flywire technology. The Flywire cables are arranged neatly and more streamlined. They are bunched together in 6 groups instead of the 5 that were previously used. The groupings are evenly spaced going towards the halfway point between the midfoot and the forefoot for a more customizable and comfortable fit.
- The prominent forefoot overlay is removed in this version for more room and breathability in the forefoot.
The ultra-sized cushioning is the perfect complement to a spacious fit that does not feel sloppy by any means. With just the right kind of snugness in the heel and midfoot, runners will feel secure and stable during running. The adequate toe room accommodates a wide variety of runners. Nike relives the fit of the prior version in the Air Max 2016. The standard widths of D for the men’s and B for the women’s are available. Sizing is on the spot with options between 6 to 15 for the men’s and 5 to 12 for the women’s.
The Waffle Pattern Outsole remains to be the outsole configuration in this line as it helps with traction and even distribution of weight with each stride. Nike uses the tough BRS 1000 carbon rubber in the outsole for exceptional durability. There are also gender-specific flex grooves for better flexibility.
The iconic Air Max Unit is still located in the heel and forefoot for superb shock-absorbing and cushioning features. Spanning the entire length of the shoe is the lightweight and durable Cushlon foam. It has decent responsiveness and adds to the plush feel of the shoe.
An engineered mesh provides breathable coverage and a more adjustable fit that works very well with the Dynamic Flywire cables. Nike adds another group in the Flywire construction to enable runners their most comfortable and personalized fit. These cables are directly attached to the sole and the laces, which is why they hold the foot extremely well. Nike’s use of the Notched Inner Sleeve makes sockless wearing a great option for runners.
