Good to know

The Nike Air Max Jewell provides a good fit for the foot. It gives great comfort and a breathable feeling with its one-piece mesh upper. It comes in women’s sizing.

The combination of comfort and style is what makes up the Nike Air Max Jewell. Having its inspiration taken originally from Air Max Plus, which was a running shoe, the Air Max Jewell proves its versatility by being a good complement for casual attire and yet going great for being a finish for a training get-up. The shoe is great when paired with some skinny jeans or a pair of leggings.

The comfort provided by the Nike Air Max Jewell is what most buyers are gushing about. They loved how comfortable the shoe is when they wear them and how light it is. The affordable price of the shoe is also a total plus.

As a part of the celebration for the Air Max Day 2017, the Nike Air Max Jewell was created by Nike. The brand took inspiration from the Air Max Plus. The Air Max Jewell is the second shoe from the Air Max collection that was designed for women.

The Air Max Plus was first released in 1998. Since then, the shoe has become an icon in the sneaker world. The shoe was also known as the Nike TN. It came out a year after the release of the AM 97. The shoe was originally released in three colorways: the OG Hyper Blue, the Orange Tiger, and Grey Shark.

In 2013, the brand relaunched the original colorway of the Nike Air Max Plus in a general release, making the fans of the sneaker go crazy over it. Seeing the reactions from the people, Nike quickly grabbed the opportunity in this and began releasing new colorways and successfully keeping the silhouette alive and even made some big hits.

The Nike Air Max Jewell was released in March 2017, with a one-piece black mesh upper with some hints of leather and synthetics to complement its sleek look. Soon after the brand released the Palm Green colorway of the shoe.

In April 2017, the brand then also released the “Nike Air Max Jewell Tortoise Shell Pack”. Nike made a few changes on this pair of sneakers by ditching the one-piece mesh upper and replacing it with the one-piece leather uppers for a more luxe appearance. The premium look of the shoe showcases the embroidered Nike Swoosh branding and the faux tortoise shell shank support which is extended up to the heel part of the shoe. The Air Max cushioning of the shoe is the one thing that stays the same about the shoe. The pack includes three colorways of black, white, and tan.

The “Silver Bullet” colorways of the Nike Air Max Jewell also followed suit from the previous releases. The brand took inspiration for this shoe from their very own Air Max 97. The shoe was set to join the release of the Air Max 95 and the Air Max Zero which also flaunts the same colorway.

A month after the release of the “Silver Bullet” colorway of the shoe, the brand then released a new colorway presented in the Nike Air Max Jewell “Metallic Gold”. The colorway, from its name, showcases the metallic gold mesh upper with the Swoosh logo and Nike branding on the heel in varsity red.

The Sunset Glow colorway of the Air Max Jewell soon followed the metallic gold colorway. The Sunset glow colored mesh covers the upper with a black Swoosh logo on the side and yellow Nike branding on the heel. The midsole of the shoe comes in white.

This women-only Air Max Jewell silhouette offers a variety of choices for everyone.

  • The upper of the shoe is made up of one piece of mesh and synthetic materials.
  • The molded heel shank of the shoe took inspiration from the original Nike Air Max Plus.
  • The Nike Air Max Jewell was released on March 2017 as a part of the Air Max Plus Day 2017.
  • The Nike Swoosh branding on the lateral side of the shoe.
  • The “Nike Air” callout on the heel part of the shoe.
  • Nike branding on the tongue.
  • The price of the “Nike Air Max Jewell Tortoise Shell Pack” is higher than the original Nike Air Max Jewell.
