Since it’s introduction in 1982 the Bruce Kilgore design has taken on many changes, adaptations, modifications, applications and upgrades.

“The test of time is not a model of monotony but, rather, an exercise in progress, which is why the Air Force 1 has never stopped evolving.

AIR MAX 2015

The Air Max 2015 is as much about reinvention as it is about revolution.

The first Air Max with a breathable, lightweight, fully engineered and almost seamless mesh upper works in tandem with Nike Flywire technology to wrap the foot. The shoe offers a plush, bouncy ride that uses tubular construction and flex grooves for the latest standard of maximum.
