It’s only March of 2016, but today we get our first look at what’s perennially among the most anticipated shoes of the year — the next flagship Air Max runner. Behold — the Nike Air Max 2017!
Details are a bit scarce this far out, of course, but the optics are certainly telling. The Nike Air Max 2017 sports a largely seamless upper, with a ridged mesh construction — sort of similar to the LeBron 13’s composition — around the heel and forefoot giving way to breathable engineered mesh through the toe.
In an interesting break from the past two annual Air Maxes, the shoe forgoes visible Flywire, a feature that was prominently featured on the sides of the Air Max 2016 and 2015. Below, of course, a full-length visible Max Air unit promises superlative cushioning with every footfall. Some traditions don’t change.
Check out four upcoming colorways of the Nike Air Max 2017 below, and stay tuned to Nikeblog for updates and release info. A launch likely won’t come until October or November, so we’ve got plenty of time to roll out more colorways.
