Whether it’s running shoes, training shoes, or basketball shoes, some colorways just seem to always work. After seeing detailed photos of the Blue Glow and Black/Sport Red colorways of the Nike Air Max Alpha 2011, we take a closer look at one of the most popular colorways Nike has had in the past few years, a combination of Dark Grey, Metallic Silver and Volt.

The varying shades of grey throughout the lightweight and seamless design of the Hyperfuse upper seem appropriate residing next to the iconic Air Max 95 logo on this colorway of the AIr Max Alpha 2011. As does the Volt colorway of the logo itself. The Volt surrounding the Nike Swoosh logo o the side panel gives the colorway a timeless appeal and with a newly designed Air Max 180 Air unit in the heel providing cushioning, the Air Max Alpha 2011 is completely new, yet familiar at the same time.

Available now: Nike Air Max Alpha
