Nike Updated Its Classic Shoes — Here’s Why You Should Care

Nike Updated Its Classic Shoes — Here’s Why You Should Care

Some shoes are so iconic, that they stay front and center for decades, outlasting the various style trends that come and go in the blink of an eye. Nike is one of the best brands at creating these sneakers. Take the Air Force 1, Air Huarache, and Air Max BW, for example. They’re here to stay. But recently, Nike has been making some subtle improvements to these old-school kicks in the form of Nike Ultra. At Eastbay, we’re loving the changes and stocking up on as many as we can.

Nike Ultra shoes are slimmed-down, streamlined versions of their classic counterparts. So, if you enjoy rocking Nike’s style staples as much as we do, you’re going to love the breathable, lightweight comfort of Nike Ultra.

Nike Ultra Air Max

Breathable

Ultra uppers cut down on bulky seams and take breathability to a whole new level with laser perforations and open mesh throughout. Your feet will feel dry, fresh, and light all day long without compromising your style.

Nike Ultra Huarache

Lightweight

The Ultra versions of these classic Air Max styles might look the same as the traditional shoes, but don’t be deceived — the Ultra updates are drastically lighter. This is because the cushioned midsoles are now doubling as outsoles, with light layers of durable rubber placed only in high-wear areas. Additionally, these midsoles are cored out, cutting down on even more weight and adding extreme flexibility to each shoe. This means you get all the durable traction you need and none of the extra bulk you don’t. Here’s a comparison of some of the Ultra options:

Men’s

Nike Air Max 90: 14.3 oz.
Nike Air Max 90 Ultra: 10.7 oz.

Women’s

Nike Air Max 1: 10.2 oz.
Nike Air Max 1 Ultra: 7.9 oz.

Nike Ultra Air Max

Comfort

Don’t worry — the traditional Air-Sole units you know and love are still present in each shoe, keeping your feet cushioned and comfortable all day long. Combine that with the breathable Ultra upper and lightweight midsole/outsole and Nike has created some of the most comfortable casual shoes around.

Eastbay has a huge array of classic Nike and Nike Ultra shoes. So, now that you understand the differences, it’s time to explore the options. Lace ’em up, try ’em out, and tell us how it feels to walk on Air.
