Joining the growing line of Nike’s running-inspired models, the Nike AM2 Light SE is exclusively available in women’s sizing only. Most reviews suggest grabbing this in half a size up for those who have wide feet. With the predominant colors of grey and white, men can also opt to cop this sport-inspired shoe. It is best to thoroughly review the site’s sizing chart for a more accurate pick.
Making this a more comfortable model than its predecessor is the plush terry lining on the insole and the surrounding heel and tongue.
Edgy, wavy patterns coupled with toned-down gray and white hues and hits of pastel purple or sea green comprise the design of the Nike Air Max2 Light SE, which allows for unlimited outfit options.
- Wearing a V-neck, white tee tucked into a muted fuschia cotton twill shorts, a khaki-colored fanny pack, a baseball cap, and a pair of AM2 Light SE in Vast Grey/Metallic Platinum/White/Purple Agate on feet is a nod to the ’90s. The era when the first AM2 Light was released.
While the parent model of the Nike Air Max2 Light SE features a perfect mix of leather and mesh upper, this special edition version is predominantly constructed of leather all throughout except for the toe box, which is covered in mesh.
Visible Max Air unit under the heel provides a bouncy and cushiony feel that cater to varying levels of air pressure. Soft terry fabric lines the insole, heel, and tongue for that extra comfort.
Reflective hints are visible through the Nike heel branding, looking transparent under light along with the Nike Swoosh lace dubrae.
The Nike Air Max2 Light SE comes from a lineage of Air Max Lights. The first Nike Air Max Light was introduced in 1989.
While Nike’s air technology has already stamped its innovative prowess to the sports community, Nike decided to up the ante by introducing a four-chambered Air Max unit, which features two different pressure systems - 25 psi and 5 psi - within one Air unit.
The outer chambers possess 25psi for a more solid and firm cushioning, while the two interior chambers with 5psi for that added bounce.
Nike AM2 Light was launched in 1994. Light because it was an ounce lighter than its predecessor but still carrying the same four-chamber Air Max unit, but the midsole was comprised of phylon foam.
- Sneaker fans also call the Air Max2, Air Max Squared.
