Nike has debuted a new silhouette dubbed the Air Max Exosense in an expressive “Atomic Powder” colorway. With an upper that seemingly draws inspiration in both hue and shape from the Air Max Plus stacked atop a midsole taken directly from the Air Max 200, the Exosense brings two different eras of Nike Sportswear together for an entirely new look.
Uppers are constructed from a vibrant orange mesh, which is quickly overlaid by a cored-out black exoskeleton This external structure has a texture that almost looks like tumbled leather, and the Exosense’s name may very well nod to its eye-grabbing style. Slightly softer shades of orange hit the toe bumper, throat, tongue and collar accents, while a light neon green shade appears on Swooshes and heels alike.
New-jack circular tongue tabs and standard heel tabs assist with entry and removal, with black rope laces weaving through the aforementioned eyestays. This upper is undeniably bold, but the lower half is simple — using only a simple jet-black Air Max unit and white EVA foam midsole to round off the style.
The Nike Air Max Exosense “Atomic Powder” is available via the Nike China webstore now, and is priced at ¥899 CNY (approximately $127 USD).
