Bottom line

Nike has a penchant for design innovation, and the Nike Air Max 720 SATRN is a good example. As one of the additions to the Air Max collection, this high-top is equipped with zippers and buckles to deliver a snug and secure fit. 

Despite these qualities, others are not fond of the enclosure system because they find it confusing at first. Overall, the Nike Air Max 720 Saturn is possibly just for the sneakerheads to appreciate, but casual shoppers could also cop a pair because of its comfort and support.

Good to know

The high-top Nike Air Max 720 SATRN is available in US men’s sizes. Users who have wide feet need to do a couple of steps to wear it properly. Undo the buckle locks and zippers, and have the laces be looser first before sliding the foot in.

A mix of materials (authentic and synthetic leather with textile) is used as the upper of the AM 720 SATRN. These materials allow for comfortable support, whether on the hardcourt or the streets. It also has an inner sleeve that offers a sock-like fit.

The design of the Nike Air Max 720 SATRN bears no resemblance to the original Air Max 720. With its unique enclosure and dynamic design elements, its appearance is certain to catch attention from onlookers and peers. Successive Nike Air Max brandings are seen on the sides which gives more distinction to the already eye-catching silhouette.

Because of its basketball-inspired design, the AM 720 Saturn looks best when paired with shorts, skinny jeans, jogging pants, or shorts. If aiming to have a complete sporty get-up, wear it with your favorite NBA player’s jersey and a closed cap.

  Air Max 720 SATRN Motorsport

The limited-edition AM 720 SATRN has a variety of design accents that pays homage to the car racing culture of Charlotte, the host city of the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend. Car branded details are seen on the tongue and heel to give a motorsport aesthetic. 

The enormous Air unit that runs on the length of its outsole allows the Nike Air Max 720 SATRN to deliver exceptional heel cushioning. This Air unit is visible thanks to the semi-translucent rubber midsole.    

During the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend, the Nike Air Max 720 SATRN is introduced as an addition to the growing Air Max 720 collection. The Motorsport version of this shoe is also released on the same weekend. Multiple colorways were released since then, with a couple of monochromatic hues.

  • $200 is the Nike AM 720 SATRN’s regular price.
  • Black, pure platinum, white/black/game royal/pink blast, and midnight navy/gym red/metallic gold/white are some of its color options.
