Nike Air Max shoes are easily one of the most popular and easily recognizable running shoes on the market. Over the years the Air cushioning system has gone from being placed in only in the heel of shoes to the latest, the Air Max 2011+, which features the an entirely Air filled midsole. Other features that have helped push the envelope for the Air Max line, air the Nike Plus iPod-ready insole and new Fuse technology that eliminates the use of traditional stitching.
This upcoming colorway also features one of the most overlooked, yet popular, details of the Air Max line, the use of speckled or splattered paint. Between the Air unit and the Fuse technology upper resides a strip of midsole that features red speckled paint that makes this upcoming colorway stand out against the rest. While you wait for this colorway, be sure to check out the other Nike Air Max 2011+ colorways that are already available.
