Nike Air Max Genome: Air Max for the new generation

The Oregon-based company remastered the Air Max lineage for the next breed of sneakerheads. Nike Air Max Genome's no-sew techie upper is made of breathable mesh overlaid with plastic for structure and added durability. Seen on the midfoot is a design reminiscent of the running footwear Nike Air Max 2015 that adds strikingly edgy “face-paced” features and unrivaled support. 

Buy this if:

  • you love the style of full-length Air-Sole unit also seen on the Nike Air Max 2017. This design provides impressive comfort while matching the overall sleek vibe of the sneaker. 
  • low-profile kicks attract you. Nike designed this iteration with a low profile to keep the bulk down while allowing maximized ankle range of motion.
  • you are an advocate of environmentally-friendly products. This sustainable product is equipped with 20% recycled materials by weight. Its grippy and durable rubber outsole is made with 3% Nike Grind formulated using post-consumer waste.
