I think they are one of the better Air Max in recent times.
Last one I liked was the 2011.
I made a grey/ black/ volt pair, which almost works every time.
It is quite hard to stay true to your design in mind with all the options available. You can do a pair that is completely of gradient colors, top to bottom as every part offers a “gradient” option.
“Oh, look! More colors don’t cost additinal fees! Let’s put some more on it!”
All I did was think like “volt and grey/ black”, that’s it. And don’t get distracted from your first idea, if you think of taking another option rather let it be…
But the retail of like 235 € is just a joke on Nike iD, it raises the stakes even more, as most people will think three times before ordering.
Nice to see three of Nike’s key technologies work together. It is clearly a shoe made of computerised stitching (EM), the straps on the sides suggest “Flywire” and on the tip there’s a reinforced part that seems like the famous “Tape”-technology.A nice touch is that the shoe is basically a sock, should be wearable with no laces. The first three laceholes are strictly Flywire, no added hole. The first lacehole is under the fourth pairing; it is just a sock-like shoe underneath it.
For the swoosh I chose a stripe-pattern, that actually makes the logo almost disappear.
A nice detail that screams “somebody thought about that!” is the upmost lacehole. As the EM material wouldn’t hold the stress of lacing them tightly, somebody reinforced the hole. Well done.
I rarely was this satisfied with a custom shoe. They are constructed well and the parts that were a bit different than the pic make it even better. There’s nothing I would’ve changed. Strangely they won’t accept a “Nike+”-sensor.
Guess I am happy with these nevertheless although they are expensive.
It is an us 8.
