Nike Air Max Correlate History

American sportswear giant Nike has established an unparalleled reputation for performance and innovation. The Oregon-based brand has already produced innumerable athletic footwear and sportswear. Among the best line of footwear that Nike has ever produced is the Nike Air line. Nike's revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in the late '70s. Originally, the Air Cushioning technology was introduced in 1979 and was conceptualized by Tinker Hatfield. On the other hand, the underlying technology of placing tiny airbags in the soles of athletic shoes to soften impact was originally created and patented by Marion Franklin Rudy, an aerospace engineer.

In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort - suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Nike Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking color combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.

The recently released Nike Air Max Correlate is one of the latest additions to Nike’s Air Max Line. As what other Nike Air max models look like, this version sports the visible Air Max bubble heel for cushioning but is updated with a trendier design. Within a couple of decades, almost all the Nike Air Max models have become a fashion statement and found its way into the hearts of all sneakerheads and also everyone else who simply loves beautiful essential shoes.
