With classic lacing as the shoe’s closure system, a more personalized and secured fit is achieved. 

Infused with particular elements of classic Air Max sneakers, this Air Max model incorporates suede patches similar to the toe and heel of an Air Max 1, the heel branding of an Air Max 90, and the vamp of an Air Structure. These low-top running sneakers are crafted with a multi-textured upper, which is a mix of mesh and leather, that is set up in throwback style.

This model also sports an Air Max unit in the heel, embroidered "Nike AIR" on the tongue, and a heel badge that's similar to the one found on the popular Nike Air Max 90. Furthermore, the shoes offer striking color combinations that make it look very fun, cool, and trendy.

With a stylish design, this sneaker is easy to match up with many outfits. A sporty, street style, and casual ensemble go well with these kicks. One can style these shoes with a pair of jeans, denim, cuffed joggers, shorts or even a dress for the ladies. These can be topped with simple pieces like shirts, blouses, tank tops, or flannel pieces. 

Constructed with a mesh, leather, and synthetic upper, this great-looking shoe provides a breathable, durable, and lightweight feel. Additionally, there is increased ventilation due to the mesh panels around the shoes. The polyurethane (PU) midsole delivers smooth and lightweight cushioning. 

The Correlate is also equipped with the visible Air Max bubble at the heel providing maximum impact protection, responsiveness, and added maximum comfort. As for the bottom of the shoes, the rubber waffle-patterned outsole ensures excellent traction on any surface.  

American sportswear giant Nike has established an unparalleled reputation for performance and innovation. The Oregon-based brand has already produced innumerable athletic footwear and sportswear. Among the best line of footwear that Nike has ever produced is the Nike Air line. Nike's revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in the late '70s. Originally, the Air Cushioning technology was introduced in 1979 and was conceptualized by Tinker Hatfield. On the other hand, the underlying technology of placing tiny airbags in the soles of athletic shoes to soften impact was originally created and patented by Marion Franklin Rudy, an aerospace engineer.

In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort - suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Nike Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking color combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.

The recently released Nike Air Max Correlate is one of the latest additions to Nike’s Air Max Line. As what other Nike Air max models look like, this version sports the visible Air Max bubble heel for cushioning but is updated with a trendier design. Within a couple of decades, almost all the Nike Air Max models have become a fashion statement and found its way into the hearts of all sneakerheads and also everyone else who simply loves beautiful essential shoes. 

  • The Nike Air Max Correlate also sports a bumper toe for more protection. 
  • Max Air technology feature less midsole material and a larger volume of airbags for a lightweight feel and maximum cushioning.
