Embraced by a “Photon Dust” palette, the renewed Air Max silhouette boasts a breathable mesh upper and cream-colored leather perimeters. Layered Swoosh emblems deliver delightful contrast — one in silver and the other set atop in a striking red hue. In addition, white rubber heel shields are embossed with a new version of Nike’s silhouette-specific branding, while geometrical panels receive further tinted markings that also land on the tongues and insoles.
Finally, large-scale exposed Air bubbles run across the midsoles’ back half, which strongly resembles the Air Max 270’s design.
Take an official look at the Air Max Pulse in the gallery above. The sneaker is scheduled to drop on Air Max Day, which lands on March 26, 2023, via Nike and select retailers for $150 USD.
Already set to bring back the iconic Air Max 1 ‘86 “Big Bubble” for Air Max Day 2023, Nike is also set to introduce a new model for the annual celebration of the Air Max line. Dubbed the “Nike Air Max Pulse,” the upcoming model stands as a new creation that builds on the lifestyle outlook and focuses on Air-fueled footwear technology.
The Nike Air Max Pulse notably features an updated heel Air Max unit which looks to be drawn from the Air Max 270 paired with a newly designed upper that utilizes engineered mesh and leather. Aside from the multiple Swoosh placements, the shoe also serves to introduce a new Air Max branding motif at the rear heel coutners. Elevating the shoe is forefoot foam and textile-wrapped, Air-assisted, point-loaded midsoles paired with rubber outsoles.
Priced at $150 USD, the Nike Air Max Pulse is now expected to debut for Air Max Day 2023 (March 26) with other colorways to be offered in the weeks following the celebration of the Air Max line.
