This Air Max Dia SE’s shape and stance may have been designed for women’s feet, but it as unisex design and also offered in a limited range of men sizes. Furthermore, its textile and synthetic upper provides a lightweight feel. This model’s low profile allows the ankles to have a full range of mobility, while its lace-up closure locks in the feet with custom fitting.
While paying homage to its ancestor’s manly Air-y aesthetic, the Nike Air Max Dia SE brings out a modern feminine style as well. One of Nike's lifestyle sneakers with an elevated sole, the SE version of the AM Dia is available in a variety of elegant colorways. You can go athletic or casual. Pair the Nike Air Max Dia SE with leggings, joggers, sweatpants, crop tops, dresses, and skirts—and of course with your best-looking pair of socks.
Its minimal, transparent Nexkin upper and Air-lifted looks make the Nike Air Max Dia SE a head-turner. The Air-sole unit cushions the foot, giving it a soft bounce throughout the day.
The 1987 release of the Air Max I, designed by Tinker Hatfield, started it all. The Air Max I featured an air pocket visible through a small window in the heel side, making it look different from other shoes. Pressing its transparent pouch, one could feel the airy sole bounce.
Then on, Nike had never stopped innovating its ever-intriguing Air technology, churning out lines of air-pocketed shoes. At some point, Nike gathered their best female creatives to push the boundaries of Nike’s Air Max designs.
That resulted to the women’s Nike Air Max Dia SE shoes, a successful blend of the past Air Max heritage and the modern Swoosh DNA. The sneaker also stands as among the few testaments of the feminity’s rise in the male-dominated sneaker culture.
