American sportswear giant Nike has established an unparalleled reputation for performance and innovation. The Oregon-based brand has already produced innumerable athletic footwears and sportswears. Among the best line of footwears that Nike has ever produced is the Nike Air line. Nike introduced its Air Cushioning technology in 1979. The Air technology was conceptualized by Tinker Hatfield, who initially worked for Nike. On the other hand, the underlying technology of placing tiny air bags in the soles of athletic shoes to soften impact was originally created and patented by Marion Franklin Rudy, an aerospace engineer. 

The Nike Air technology is distinguished by the midsoles which incorporate flexible urethane pouches filled with pressurized gas and are made visible from the exterior of the shoe. This innovation is intended to provide extreme cushioning underfoot. By using the embedded Air cushioning in the midsoles of the shoes, it changed the athletes’ perspectives to athletic performance. The Nike  Air component became larger and eight years later the Nike Air Max line was introduced. In 1987, the first model of the Air Max line was released. This latest discovery, which provides greater cushioning and comfort, made the athletes see as well as feel the benefits of Nike Air Max. 

There are a lot of Nike Air Max iterations that have been produced and one of them is the Air Max 720 20, Nike’s new offering for the Air Max world, the most iconic sneaker family in the Beaverton brand. It is now available in this new version, part of the "Bubble Pack", a collection celebrating the 30th anniversary of Air Max inspired by bubble wrap. The name chosen, 720, comes from the idea that the Air unit itself is visible at 360 degrees, both horizontally and vertically. 

  • The Air Max 720 20 features the tallest and biggest Air unit yet.
  • 720, which is the chosen name, comes from the idea that the Air unit itself is visible at 360 degrees, both horizontally and vertically.
