Originally introduced in 1981, the Air Mariah was only the second Nike runner to feature Air-sole cushioning. The shoe was re-released in 1988, done up in the classic white, blue and infrared colorway that's become virtually synonymous with vintage Nike runners, and almost 30 years later the new Air Mariah Flyknit evolves the original creation. It's still built for speed, but now showcases an updated focus on wearability and comfort. The modern technologies include an adaptive Flyknit bootie for ease of wear, Brio cables for a secure fit and responsive Air Zoom cushioning to lessen the impact from daily miles. Expect the kicks to drop June 22nd via SNKRS and select Nike retailers.
