This weekend, Nike, along with thousands of sneakerheads, celebrated Air Max Day. As the name suggests, Air Max Day is a celebration of Air Max technology, which changed the sneaker industry forever. This year, however, was special. It marked the 30th anniversary of the Air Max 1, the shoe that pushed Air Innovation to new heights.
Air has been an integral part of Nike ever since it was first introduced in 1979’s Air Tailwind. For the first eight years it was hidden, felt rather than seen. Then, in 1987, it became visible with Air Max. The revolution had begun. It quickly spread, from running to basketball to training and tennis, at the same time becoming a coveted lifestyle product across the globe. After 30 years, Air Max continues to evolve.
As they usually do, sneakerheads celebrated the special day by sharing some of their favorite Air Max sneakers on Instagram along with the #AirMaxDay hashtag. Take a look at some of our favorite photos below:
