With its shape and stance designed for a woman’s feet, the new Nike Air Max Dia is offered 5 to 12 sizes. The heel and tongue each have a pull tab for smoother and quicker on-and-offs.
The Nike Air Max Dia casual shoes fulfill a woman’s styling needs. Pair them up with cozy leggings, joggers, and tracksuits for that active, sporty vibe. They can also be dressed up with skirts, skinny jeans, and capri pants for casual wear. Because the Nike Air Max Dia is offered in a wide array of boldly feminine colorways, the potentials for styling remain boundless.
The Air Max Dia showcases a futuristic silhouette. Its streamlined synthetic upper sits atop an elevated midsole, equipped with the classic visible Air Max cushioning at the heel. Small Nike swooshes are embossed on the collar and the forefoot area for subtler branding.
Nike introduced the Air Max I, designed by Tinker Hatfield, in 1987. That was the beginning of the Air Max technology. It featured a visibly air-pocketed sole, seen through a window in the heel area, which resulted in one of the most distinct and unforgettable sneaker silhouettes seen by men.
The following years saw Nike banking on this Air technology. The designs following the Air Max 1 first featured slightly larger air pockets and larger windows then up to entirely and visibly aired transparent outsoles that stretched from heel to toe. Even after producing many models of these air-pocket soles, Nike didn’t slow down and kept on innovating.
In 2018, the Nike Air Max Dia, a women’s exclusive sneaker, was released. Breaking boundaries, Nike had teamed up their best female creatives to come up with a feminine iteration of the legendary manly sneaker.
- The Nike branding on the heel has four small dots, representing the women who designed the Nike Air Max Dia.
- The rubber slightly jutting out around the perimeter of the outsole adds more traction and stability.
