En**** more unfamiliar territory on our journey through Air Max history, Asics Gel Lyte 5 Femme the 1994 Air Max (predictably labelled the Air Max 94) is frequently overlooked or unknown by even the most avid sneaker collectors. So, what is it? It’s essentially a hybrid of the Nike Air Max Light and The Nike Air Max 93. And if you’re asking us, we think that makes it pretty damn cool.

My absolute favourite Air Max model is one that has still never had a re-release, the Air Max 2 from 1994. This was one of the last Air Maxs that Tinker Hatfield designed, and it introduced multiple Air chambers with different Adidas Ultra Boost Femme pressures for strategic cushioning and support (later found in the Air Max 95). The upper, speckled mudguard and different-coloured Air units in the heel all come together to make one incredible design.

Just as they did with the original Air Max, Nike created a lighter version of the Air Max 2. However, unlike the Nike Air Huarache Mujer 1s, the Air Max 2 Light proved more popular than its predecessor.

A sneaker of subtle branding and striking form; the Sergio Lozano designed Air Max 95 was created with the human anatomy in mind (a fun fact which seems simultaneously cool and slightly gross). It’s important to note that the Air Max 95 marks an important milestone in the Nike Air Max timeline as the complete overhaul in design signify the brand’s confidence in its relationship with their consumer. In short: by ‘95, they had us.

An original ‘chunky sneaker’; the Nike Air Max 96 has a lot in common with today’s most sought-after silhouettes. In fact, with its minimal branding, layered upper and bulky sole being so en-vogue, we’re anticipating a re-release in the near future.

Finally, full-length Air cushioning. The Air Max 97 — designed by Christian Tressler and Nike Air Pegasus 89 Femme inspired by waterdrops making ripples in a pond — is the darling of the sneakerhead community. And while the OG colourway is often dubbed the ‘Silver Bullet’, the hue was in fact inspired by the silver sheen of mountain bikes.

If any Air Max encapsulates 90s fashion, it’s the Air Max 98. Mismatched design and bold, contrasting Nike Air Max 97 Dames colours make the 1998 kicks one of the most eye-catching Nike releases ever.

Florida: the location where Sean McDowell first envisioned a sneaker that drew inspiration from the beach. Palm trees swaying, colours of the sunset and sea life are all translated through design upon the Air Max Plus (better known as the Nike TN). It’s ironic then that the sneaker proved most popular in gloomy London. Why? Perhaps the vibrant sneaker was a form of escapism.

Inspired by European rave culture (which was all the Adidas Gazelle Womens rage in 1999); the upper of the Nike Air Max Deluxe upper is completely covered by digitally-printed neoprene. Just like a rave, the trance-inspired trainers were created to be loud, vibrant and youthful.

The first significant release of the 00s acted as a breath of fresh air after the chaotic aesthetics of the late 90s. Adidas Ultra Boost Dame Monochromatic, clean and well-formed; the Nike Air Max 2003 (thought-up by Sergio Lozano of Air Max 95 fame) made promises of a sleeker feature.

A performance-focused silhouette, the Nike Air Max 360 is built upon an Air unit that is visible from every angle (something you probably guessed from its name). It reflects a time in which a sneaker’s ability to be used in sports was regarded as highly important.

Return of the Max. That refined future Nike hinted at with the Air Max 2003 finally came 14 years later when Nike Epic React Flyknit Damen the Flyknit Vapormax released. And oh boy, it was worth the wait. A Kathy Gomez design, the Vapormax is the first time the Air Unit stands alone as the sneaker’s sole. Combined with a flyknit upper, the feel and fit of the Vapormax is like no other.
