Nike Air Max Zephyr: Surrounding the foot with Air-tech

For Nike, feeling like walking on Air is so yesterday. That is why they devised a cutting-edge technology that gives its wearers an experience as if clouds of Air surround their feet.

In 2019, Nike unveiled the Nike Air Max 720. This model launched the brand's largest Air cushioning unit to date, called Nike 720 Air cushioning. This tech boasts its enhanced responsive cushioning and comfort.  

A year after, the Oregon-based company unveiled another iteration that uses the same technology. The Nike AM Zephyr has an ultimate modern look resting on Nike's largest Air unit - the 720 cushioning. 

Nike Air Max Zephyr vs Nike Air Max 720

The Nike AM Zephyr borrows a lot of features from the equally fashionable Nike Air Max 720. Both these athletic-inspired designs look trendy and sleek with their futuristic details. They are buoyed by an ultra-responsive cushioning, 720 Air unit underfoot that provides modernized day-long comfort.

Although they look almost similar, these sneakers differ in quite a few elements. The Zephyr is the first-ever Air Max model that features Air pod units on the upper and tongue to enhance the comfort and futuristic style. Also, it has a utilitarian appeal, thanks to the airy tactile mesh underlay for ventilation, thus giving it a bit advantage over the 720.
