Let's rock without rolling with the Nike Air Structure

Released in the first formative years of the visible Air units, the Nike Air Structure was designed with a broader and flatter outsole to cater to runners with overpronation. Nike has launched over 20 models under the Air Structure umbrella, making it one of the oldest running profiles in Nike's arsenal. 

Remarkable features:

Also known as Nike Air Structure Triax 91, its style and comfort are reminiscent of another well-celebrated model, the Nike Air Max 90. Here are a few notable elements that set it apart from its Air Max folks:

  • It is made of a multi-paneled upper made of felt, mesh, and TPU to provide durability, depth, and retro style.
  • With just the right amount of pop of hues, this sneaker displays a look that embodies the 90s running footwear style.
  • Its broader sole provides superb stability; hence, it prevents inward rolling of the foot. 
  • The embroidered branding on the heel and tongue adds a premium touch.

Further facts

In the early part of 2021, the brand re-introduced the Air Structure in its OG colorway to celebrate the silhouette's 30th anniversary. The Nike Air Structure OG appears to be a one-to-one replication of the original. It features an upper dominated by white, gray, and black hues added with Neo Teal and Infrared pop of colors. It showcases different colored outlines on the lateral and medial sides of the sneaker.
