Nike Air Max 2X: Twice the comfort, twice the style 

Staying authentic to the legacy of the Nike Air collection, the Air Max 2X is all about comfort and style. The layered upper flaunts an 80s fashion with its eye-catching natural waves and points. Meanwhile, the banked up Air Max cushioning found on its sculpted sole dualizes the overall comfort.  

What is Nike Air Max cushioning?

The Nike Air Max cushioning is the Air cushioning technology visible from the exterior of the sneaker. Each Air unit uses pressurized air found inside a flexible bag that stretches when pressure is applied and springs back when you step off. This way, it absorbs shock and releases energy effectively.

Air units are strategically placed into Air Max footwear soles, depending on which area needs cushioning the most. Mostly, Air soles are found on the heel to maximize its impact protection.

Nike Air Max 1: AM 2X's iconic ancestor

First to display the visible Air cushioning, the Nike Air Max 1 is deemed one of the brand's most iconic silhouettes. Released in 1987, Tinker Hatfield, with the help of Mark Parker, developed the Air Max design with a vision of making its runners perform better and faster. 

This remarkable iteration has undergone countless reinventions over time to make it adaptable to every generation. Nike collaborated with various names and inserted a few of its innovative technologies, such as Hyperfuse, Lunarlon, and Flyknit, to maintain its significance to the modern sneaker realm.
