Nike has successfully reinterpreted some of their classic models in the last few years by updating well-known silhouettes with high-tech materials. In this updated Air Maxim 1+, the lightweight, breathable torch material is employed on the collar and toe portions, while the durable flywire adorns the midfoot. Last year, we got the chance to see this model in the http://freshnessmag.com/2009/07/01/nike-sportswear-air-maxim-1-sport-red-varsity-blue/”>original blue and red colorways, and we can see that on this model the material above the midfoot is soft, and it replaces the suede of the older molds. This simple and direct styling is a indicative of the strides Nike’s has made to preserve their heritage and stay on top of the performance elements as well. These are available now at http://item.rakuten.co.jp/mitasneakers/mi100424-04/”>Mita Sneakers, and will be at http://nike.com/nikeos/p/sportswear/en_US/”>Nike Sportswear retailers soon.
