A NEW GENERATION OF AIR MAX STYLE.
Nodding to ’90s running, the Nike Air Max Axis honors the past while looking to the future. Subtle design lines and branding pay homage to icons like the Air Max 97 and 98, while sleek no-sew skins and airy mesh add a modern look. The flowing midsole and unique heel design unveil the Max Air cushioning in a bold new way.
Originally designed for performance running, the visible Max Air unit provides lasting comfort.
The design lines and details nod to the iconic ’90s running shoes you love—the wavy no-sew skins celebrate the 98, webbing eyestays nod to the 95 and the Swoosh placement on the side echoes the 97.

Nike Air Max Origins
Revolutionary Air technology first made its way into Nike footwear in 1978. In 1987, the Air Max 1 debuted with visible Air technology in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air cushioning—suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking color combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
