The Air Max Thea Print sneaker has a low-profile, streamlined look that belies the shoe’s running-inspired design. It allows lots of movement for the ankles and feet, making it perfect for physical activities that require fast maneuvers and turns.
A pull tab in the heel allows for easy on and off maneuver.
This low-top shoe has a minimalist look that looks well with just about anything. Pair it with your favorite jeans, shorts, or leggings, and you’re good to go.
The Air Max Thea Print features the visible Air-Sole unit the Air Max line is known for. Injected Phylon in the midsole gives the shoe a cushiony feel while the Air-Sole unit absorbs shock. A Solarsoft sock liner provides the shoe with an easy feel for every foot strike.
The very first Air Max model was released in 1987. Dubbed the Air Max 1, it featured Nike’s Air-Sole unit but made it visible for wearers to see. This groundbreaking design was well-received by the public and was the start of the masses’ love affair with the Air Max.
Throughout the years, the Nike Air Max collection has released dozens of models and iterations, all featuring the visible air unit that the line is known for. From the iconic Air Max 95s and 97s to the self-lacing HyperAdapt (the real-life Air Mag from Back to the Future II), many of these models developed a cult following.
The Air Max Thea Print comes from this long line of stylish and innovative models. The Air Max Thea was first launched in 2013. The silhouette seems to be a hybrid of the original Air Max and Air Max 90 with a bit of the Nike Roshe Run thrown in. It was an exclusive-for-women model with a bright flash lime colorway. It featured 3M accents on the tongue, a white midsole, and visible Air Max unit at the heel.
The Air Max Thea soon launched in other colorways as well as new iterations including the Air Max Thea Woven and the Air Max Thea Print. The Thea Max Print had the sleek minimalistic look and light weight of a running shoe. It features a textile upper along with leather and synthetic overlays.
- The shoe has an approximately 1.5” high midsole.
- There is sufficient padding in the ankle collar and tongue for enhanced comfort.
