Masters of Max: The Air Max Icons – Air Max 360



Your penultimate Master of Max the Air Max 360. 2006, A new dawn for Air Max (it seems that happens a lot) with the entire 360 sole unit basically one giant air bubble, the foam was gone leaving a 360 degree air experience. We personally feel this is a somewhat of a slept on model not quite given the full credit it deserves. It’s a pleasure looking back at it now, especially in the initial release make ups. Where does the 360 rank for you sneakerholics?


Almost 20 years after the original Air Max debuted, the mission to make wearers walk on air was realised in the Nike Air Max 360. Nike engineered a completely new kind of Max Air unit that offered improved air-cushioned stability. Gone were the substantial layers of foam separating the foot from the air, and for the first time, thermo-moulded construction helped achieve 360 degrees of cushioning.

A tribute to the original Air Max colour palette highlighted the latest breakthrough, while the laser- cut gradated effect on the upper resurrected the Air Max 95’s look. A onetime-only limited edition pack even applied some iconic Air Max uppers to this new sole.
