If Nike‘s announcement for plans of a new Air Manufacturing Innovation Facility in Goodyear wasn’t enough evidence that it is looking to push AIR in a big way, then these latest streams of new Air Max silhouettes should do the trick. Closely following the teased boxing shoe and the more recent Air Max 270, this latest Air-infused offering comes in the form of the Nike Air Max 200.
Clearly taking cues from the Air Max 180, this futuristic upgrade also borrows a few key design elements from the Air Max 90, and makes use of Nike’s modern rounded/tubular Air unit that can be found in the Air Max 720 and Air Max 270. The Air Max 200 also opts for padded synthetic uppers to keep things breathable and light; additional material is applied over the mesh uppers to provide support in important areas of the foot.
While the Air Max 200 is currently only offered in the Asia region online, for roughly $130 USD, we can expect a full global release on nike.com in the coming weeks.
