Nike Air Max Thea Ultra Flyknit History

The history of any shoe carrying the visible max Air unit almost always goes back to the Air Max 1. It is quite obvious that the Thea traces its roots to this awe-inspiring Tinker Hatfield creation. The 80s was an exciting time for sneaker world. It was almost a regular occurrence that one brand will come up with a design or technology that will put the others running back to their labs and come up with something of equal significance or even a better creation.

In 1987, Hatfield, after being inspired by the now equally as adored institution, the Centre Georges Pompidou, decided to make the Air unit three times bigger. Not only that, he designed the midsole to be opened up and make the previously invisible Air technology there for everyone to see. While it is now quite a folklore that the Nike higher ups were against this, one can only imagine the ripple effects had Hatfield and a young Mark Parker (now Nike’s CEO) not persisted.

After the ’87 Air Max came a series of shoes all following the spirit and visible Air unit in the heel of the original. However, there came a time when Nike decided that a woman-specific shoe that is heavily taken from the Air Max 1 be introduced. Hence, the first Air Max Thea was born.

The Nike Air Max Thea Ultra Flyknit is a new iteration of the Air Max Thea, a woman-specific sneaker that was released in 2014. This latest version received the Flyknit treatment that offers maximum breathability and adequate support. Incorporated in the shoe is also the iconic visible Max Air unit in the heel which was first used in the legendary Air Max 1.
