With its stylish looks, it can also be used in various occasions other than just for a run. One can use the shoe when going for training in the gym. It can also be a great choice when going for a casual walk around the town or when running errands, since the shoe looks great with a pair of jeans or shorts.

The Air Max 2013 silhouette was given a Moire treatment by Nike Sportswear. The Air Max 2013 had unfortunately received some backlash, mostly because of how the Air Max branding on the shoe’s heel calls for attention. With the help of the of the Air Zoom Moire style that is being applied to the Air Max 2013 silhouette, a fresh and a rather attractive look on the shoe was released in the form of the Air Max Motion.

The Air Max Motion “White Label” collection was then released. The new model combined both performance and detail and style which were what Nike Sportswear was keen of. The shoe features a perforated leather upper which was entirely Swoosh-free. A premium leather sockliner and the Dynamic Flywire that acts as eyelets were also added.

The Air Max Motion silhouette then joined in the release of the “City Pack” by the summer of 2014, in the form of the Nike Air Max Motion Rio. The new colorway of the model was inspired by the host of the World Cup that year. The shoe features a grey one-piece perforated upper with its full-length Max Air bag in fading color from volt to blue. A contrasting royal blue on the inner-lining and tongue-tags is observed with a “RIO BRASIL” logo. A printed Swoosh in light blue finishes up the look of the shoe.

Another iteration made to the Air Max Motion silhouette was the Nike Air Max Motion LW SE. The model was also released in 2014. It features a highly-breathable engineered mesh upper along with an ultra-lightweight film overlays, with the printed Swoosh logo in a tonal color.
