Prima facie, these appear to be the an instant revival for the recently ended Livestrong x Nike series, however this is not so, you’re actually looking at the Nike Air Maxim ‘Torch’. The Torch has been floating around the net since back in August, here we can finally see exactly what the shoe will look like. As a Maxim model, the shoes feature fly-wire side panelling and a slightly altered shape, particularly in the toe region to that of the Max 1. What’s distinct about this model, apart from it’s yellow swoosh and tongue (which gives the shoe its nickname), is the mesh on the toebox – under the surface lies a secondary grid, presumably making this model more durable than other Maxims. The Torch is currently scheduled to release in Spring 2010.
