Style of the Nike Air Max Oketo

The low-top Nike Air Max Oketo borrowed elements from two AM models. Its textured rand and embossed synthetic heel piece came from the Air Max 90. The notches on its midsole are inspired by the original Air Max. But, the overall silhouette of the sneaker is considered modest by AM standards, which has been appreciated by several wearers.

Nike Air Max Oketo Midsole

Displaying a laidback Air Max profile, the Nike Oketo with its breathable mesh upper with synthetic overlays can be used for a variety of casual events. Activities such as summer strolling, going out with family and friends, or during holiday trips are better while this Air Max sneaker is on your feet. Its sporty appearance works best when paired with fitted jeans, a hooded jacket, and a closed cap.

Notable Features

The Max Air unit on its midsole delivers superior underfoot control. Another material that was utilized on the midsole is the full-length Cushlon, which allows responsive impact absorption. Midfoot lockdown is possible due to the Flywire technology applied on the Nike Air Max Oketo's upper. Durability is offered by the no-sew synthetic overlays.

History of the Nike Air Max Oketo

The Nike Air Max series is recognized as one of the most popular and extensive sneaker collections by the Swoosh Brand. Its first model was released in 1987 and was designed by the decorated designer Tinker Hatfield and Nike developer Mark Parker. The first Air Max releases didn’t have a significant amount of fanfare. But as time goes along and with the introduction of iconic AMs such as the Air Max 95 and 97, it became one of the most sought-after sneakers by collectors and casual wearers.
