Nike Air Butane Max Black/White

words // Nick Engvall

The late 90’s and early 2000’s were filled with unique Nike training shoes especially from Nike. With athletes like Barry Sanders, Ken Griffey Jr, Deion Sanders, Jerome Bettis and more, all sporting the Swoosh, everything from signature models to the Metal Max line helped Nike Training expand their lineup of memorable shoes beyond the years of Bo Jackson.

One model that has recently returned to Eastbay from that era is the Nike Air Butane Max. Easily recognizable thanks to the pronounced midsole and visible Air units in the heel and forefoot, the Butane Max also featured metal mesh inserts and plastic flame-like inserts in the side panels that added to its unique style. An aggressive outsole helped make it a solid option for outdoor training as well.
