Good to know

Make your opponents mad by executing pinpoint stutter steps and swerving past defenders; it’s time to take your game to new heights with the Nike Air Max Infuriate Low.

Designed for fast and dynamic play, the Air Max Infuriate Low offers lightweight stability and containment with plush cushioning and a classic Air Max style.

Cushion. The Nike Air Max Infuriate Low features a Phylon midsole with Air Max in the heel for lightweight cushioning.

The Phylon foam midsole delivers cushioning for a stable ride and offers support during hard landings. In the heel, a full 180-degree Air Max unit responds to lateral movements on the fly and helps cushion impact.

Traction. The shoes have a durable rubber outsole with multidirectional herringbone traction pattern that allows for an excellent grip on a variety of surfaces.

Length and Width. The Nike Air Max Infuriate Low runs true to size but is reportedly very narrow at the forefoot. Wide-footers are advised to try the shoes in-store first.

Lockdown. The shoes feature Flywire cables that integrate with the lacing system for dynamic lockdown and support. The cables wrap the foot; providing a snug fit.

A high cut U-throat base around the ankle improves motion and helps distribute force throughout the shoe. The Flywire cables and high U-throat construction combine for a better lockdown.

The Nike Air Max Infuriate Low features a mesh upper for breathable and lightweight comfort. On the upper, a unique screen-printed design uses high-abrasion ink for a protective coating.

The shoe’s low-cut style is reminiscent of past Nike Basketball models. Its midsole is similar to that of the Nike LeBron 13 Low. However, bold lines lead into a 180-degree Air Max unit in the heel.

The Nike Air Max Infuriate Low’s mesh upper is finished with screen-printed graphics and a large Swoosh at the tongue, another detail similar to the LeBron signature line.
