Style of the Nike Air Max Prime

Looking premium without even trying seems to be the Nike Air Max Prime's best assets in terms of style. The creatively designed sneaker's mix of mesh and tumbled leather all throughout the upper only shows how Nike designers really spent the time to consider a person's own personal style by being a versatile lifestyle shoe.

Possessing all the familiar Air Max attributes that include three visible air soles at the heel and the air-sole unit at the bottom, the Nike Air Max Prime is further pimped up by the waffle patterned rubber outsole, cleatie-inspired neoprene collar, and Nike Air Max rubber branding at the heel back.

Notable Features

Displaying the timeless Air Max silhouette, the visible air cushioning at the heels remains to be the major selling point and notable feature of the Nike Air Max Prime. The three visible air-sole and the air sole unit at the heel give lightweight comfort to its wearers.

The good mix of mesh and leather also helps keep the entire footwear stable while a waffle sole with a unique traction pattern ensures a solid grip to the surface.

History of the Nike Air Max Prime

The design, which first came out in 1987, highlighted quite literally the Nike Air cushioning technology. Displaying the air cushioning technology with an air bubble visible in the back sole was a provocative idea at the time when designers would have wanted it hidden.
