Nike Air


What is Nike Air?

Nike Air technology consists of pressurised air inside a tough yet flexible bag and provides
more flexibility and spring without compromising structure. The Air Sole units maintain their
given form with elasticity, lower impact and keep the shoe snug and lightweight. 


Energy Absorption With each step, Nike Air cushioning absorbs impact
and immediately returns to its original shape to protect
the body. These innovations allow any athlete to
perform harder, while providing flawless comfort. 


Lightweight Durability Nike Air cushioning reduces the weight of the shoe without
reducing performance. The lighter the shoe is, the less energy
athletes put out during their performance. Athletes need the
cushioning in their footwear to last and Nike Air is designed
to provide support throughout the life of the shoe. 


The Technology of Air

Zoom Air

Tightly stretched tensile fibres are knitted inside
a pressurised Nike Air unit, giving the Zoom Air
cushioning its snappy responsiveness. Each
time an athlete's foot touches down, the fibres
compress to cushion the impact before quickly
springing back to their original state, generating
an explosive, powerful response off the ground.
Whether elite athletes are racing or training,
they look to Zoom Air for a fast, responsive ride
and that snappy, quick-off-the ground feel that
helps optimise their quest for speed.

Max Air

Max Air was Nike's first visual expression of Air
technology. Inspired by the avant-garde, inside-out
architecture of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Hatfield
gave birth to the Air Max by opening a literal window to
the sole. It single-handedly kick-started a revolution in
the footwear industry.


Sustainable Innovation Air delivers on our most daring dream: helping every athlete feel the unparalleled sensation of walking
on air while protecting the environment where we live and play. All Air soles contain at least 50%
recycled materials and are made with 100% renewable energy. Light on your feet. Lighter on waste.
