Nike air max 90


1987 saw the creating of Air Max 1 because of technological and design breakthroughs in sneakers. The designer behind this was Tinker Hatfield. Hatfield was inspired by the Centre Georges Pompidou, which featured the interior of the building e.g. electric, plumbing, and a variety of colors on the outside. As a result of this, the first sneaker with an exposure Air bubble was released and the revolution of footwear design and running sneakers began. The Air Max line was born with a certified hit on Hatfield’s hands, and the urge to improve its look, the Air technology for better performance was also born. It experimented with the Nike Air Walker Max in 1988 then Air Max 1 was re-mixed to Air Max Light the following year. It has been one of the famous footwear lines in history. Since its launch, the sneaker has sold more units in the current day compared to 30 years ago. By having Nike Air branded plate on the heel and a bigger air bubble with a colorful outlook of the Air Max 90 it changed the perception of running shoes by people. The Air Max 90 was also popular outside the, UK, Japan, and the USA. Aussie designers come into the limelight with the release of the ‘Running Man’ AM90 in 2008. The view of the Air Max 90 in recent years has changed as it is seen as a throwback steeped in nostalgia. But still, the sneaker has its main structure from the basic made by Tinker Hatfield.

History of the Nike Air Force 1


Dustin Tolliver was leading the effort when Nike Air Force 1 was making a comeback. He is the product Director of Nike’s Global Footwear. He was a veteran of this industry, so he had an overview of what was to be done. Nike Air Force 1 might seem like an easy shoe to retro, but it has some subtle considerations. Air Force 1 is one of the most popular models of all time which does not make things easier. For those who are not crazy about shoes Nike Air Force 1 is a go-to. Considering all these factors Tolliver had to get the release right. He was able to understand the factors that made the shoe iconic. His job involved reflecting on the 1980s debut. For example, the shoe’s shape. The first release of Air Force 1 was more streamlined. As a result of subtle upgrades, the silhouettes from the 90s onwards added some bulk. In the process, Tolliver and his team searched for od lasts and shells to bring back the OG. Some leather sections were stripped to OG form, and they restructured the overlays. The lather base was also brought back to its OG quality. A lot of people love Air Force 1, what is with all this fuss on an old sneaker? 

The Designer.

We must talk about the man before getting to the shoe itself. The status of the Air Force 1 is a unique style. This is due to technological achievement. Air Force 1 is released as an addition to basketball wear. A lot of elements about its build are innovative. These were inspired by Bruce Kilgore. He was one of the employees at Nike. By then the company name was Blue Ribbon Sports. Kilgore oversaw improving the track spike design. His work was impressive and was moved over the brand’s basketball efforts. At that time, it was called Nike full of a lot of ambition. Kilgore was given one prototype as Nike wanted to lead in the hoop category in the 80s. Nike’s team of advisers included biochemists, aerospace engineers, and podiatrists. They all supported Kilgore in designing the shoe. One of the tech innovations incorporated in the Nike Air Force 1 was the cup sole. It was added to promote durability. The shoe was made for an intense sport. The rounded outsole traction pattern was also introduced.

The pattern focused on the basketball player’s motions. Smoother pivots were allowed by the circular design that helps someone not lose out traction. Tinker Hatfield was also inspired by the Air Force 1’s design. He acted as a designer on the Air Force 1, but his profession was as an architect. Hatfield was fascinated by the design that he moved over to footwear design. Another shoe that has a unique design is the Nike Kyrie 11 which has a distinctive outsole. It was inspired by Air Force 1. The Air Force 1 inspiration is very much valid in our current days. Air Force 1 is a household name known by everyone but is not easy to tell on the origin of its performance design. 

Nike Renew Run 2


This product was launched by Nike to create comfort for the customer. The improvements were a big chunky midsole that absorbs hits when walking, hence the impact on joints is softened, and the load when padding around the heel cup and tongue. It sounds like running on big squishy clouds on paper but, did it meet its purpose of a great running experience? Or did it fail when it came to functionality? To keep costs low the renew run 2 uses old Nike technologies accrued from years, through renewing, and reusing the product with modern designs to make them up to date. This creates a mid-lower price range which a daily trainer can afford. Renew Run 2 has similar attributes to Nike Infinity Run but at different prices. 

Its first impressions.

The weight of the Renew Run is the first thing to note. Renew Run is one of the heaviest running shoes compared to Winflo 7, React Miler, and Downshifter 10. The women’s UK size 6.5/EU 40.5 weights 308g. As you put the shoe on you will notice that it has excess padding around the ankle and the tongue. It is well-structured, tough, and locks down the footwell, creating comfort and good fitting. The fit is true to the size of the foot in terms of length and width. It feels more rigid, padded, and weighty on foot which is like Winflo. Walking along a wet gravel canal path it picks a lot of stones and mud in outsole grooves and midsole patterns making it to be evenly heavier. The sole unit feels hard, and the shoe does not return great energy as someone’s legs become more tired. It has a lot of similarities aesthetically to the first Renew Run and the difference is the shaping on the tongue and the collar which adds more support. Small design changes have been made on the swoosh whereas the outsole is similar in the first Renew Run and the Renew Run 2. Compared to the previous ones the Renew Run has impressive looks for those who love chunky shoes. They can be worn outside of the workout as the colorways are spot on. Also, the deep grooves on the outsole pattern are attractive to those who love the designs. 

The sole unit.

A dense cushioning and stability are provided by the sole. Decoupled outsole feels firmer and is like premium React foam. With the popularity of the decoupled outsole in the shoes, it has improved shock absorption by spreading the force from hits on the ground to the rest of the foot. Dual-density midsole provides cushioning under the heel on heavy heel hits on the ground. Much of the excess weight is on the midsole because the Lunarlon foam is an older technology and thus creates a dense feeling on the feet. The shoe gives good heel-to-toe transitions and thus providing adequate flexes. The cost-saving aspect of the shoe is made on the older heavier foam. For good grip traction and durability, the outsole rubber coats the Lunarlon foam. There is no wearing down after 50 miles hence the shoe lasts well over time. Not a bad sole unit in overall score but no new improvements as compared to other shoes.

The upper unit.

The maximal padding on the upper unit is the most noticeable thing. It is thick stretching down to the tongue and the heel cup. On a muddy run the breathable, dual-layer meshed, synthetic textile upper will keep your feet dry. The feet are kept locked down well by the TPU overlays around the flat laces. The durability and lifespan of the shoe are further added by the overlays on seams and toe box.

Rawdacious footwear


Talk about color! Talk about style! Talk about comfort! Nike has launched its new footwear collection, dubbed Rawdacious. Rawdacious is a combination of the words Audacious and Raw. It describes something daring and completely bold. The name genuinely describes what this shoe is. Did I mention the use of color? Read on ?.

Rawdacious presents a combination of colors, white being the main one. It has a dash of pink, orange and bright crimson. It is a color pallete ?, used to symbolize Unity of sports. “Why all these colors?”, you would ask. Let us go through the details. A lot of research is normally undertaken when designing Nike shoes. This means that each technical component is a result of continuous research. So, the color blocking feature shows these technical components for what they are. Color white is used as a symbol of unity, while pink, orange, and bright crimson are inspired by the spirit and excitement reuniting through sport. 

“Color has the nuanced ability to invite both reaction and reflection at once,” says Martha Moore, Nike VP, Central Color Product Design. “You see a color, and you immediately react in a certain way. Color can also open the door to history, connections to other disciplines and to memory. In creating this year’s palette, we worked to consider color holistically to best represent a moment in time.”

Tokyo Olympics debut

Rawdacious footwear will make its debut in the 2021 Tokyo Olympics Games. It is coming in a variety of types; Nike SB Bruin React models, Nike SB Zoom Janoski, Nike Basketball’s Air Zoom G.T. Run, Nike SB Shane, and Nike SB’s Nyjah Free 2. 

Not an athlete? Don’t worry. There is something for you. Select performance and lifestyle footwear will arrive at Nike’s official website and select retailers throughout summer.
