The Nike Air Max has always been a cornerstone sneaker, and it’s renditions are some of the most iconic in all of sneaker lore. This year’s Air Max has some striking similarities to the Air Max 09, with a visible air bubble that goes throughout the whole sole and what appears to be flywire on the upper near the swoosh. This upcoming model utilizes plastic on the heel and not on the toe, while the 09 reverses that order. The flywire in the 09 model has a crossed pattern, while the 2010 model opts for a vertical stripe approach. Mesh again appears in the toebox and throughout the upper. As you can see from the pics, the shoe’s colorblocking allows for the models to range in colors. Particularly interesting are the aqua, gray, and silver models and the model that features the classic air max scheme–lime, black, grey, and silver. These Air Maxes are also updated with Nike+ technology. Keep an eye out for more information about the latest installment of a legendary line from Nike. Via Sneaker News
