2019 already looks set to be another massive year for Air Max with the re-release of the Nike Air Max 2.

If you’re an Air Max sneaker head that lines up your Air Max in order of style then you might need to add some extra room to your sneaker wardrobe! Following on from the re-releases of the Air Max 98, the Air Max 180 and the Air Max 93 in 2018, Nike are now officially re-releasing the Air Max 2 Light from the Oregon archives. Although titled the Air Max 2, it was no by no means the second Air Max silhouette to be released. The Air Max 2 proceeded other notable ‘Visible Air’ styles such as the Air Max 90 and the Air Max 93, first dropping in 1994. 25 years later and the sneaker game has changed a lot, raffles and resale now rule the roost, however original 90s Air Max styles are still as popular as ever.

The Air Max 2 Light trainer came off the back of the original Air Max 2 release, with a subtle update to the Air Max sole technology hence the added ‘Lightness’ as the name would suggest. As the Nike design team looked to push the boundaries of Visible Air even further the ‘Light’ version of the shoe stripped down the midsole with its updated Phylon cushioning, making the design significantly lighter than the original release. With its dual pressure Air Max chamber to the midsole the cushioning was like nothing runners had experienced before.

With a mixture of white leather and mesh uppers with classic Nike colourways such as University Gold, Race Blue and Crimson Red. OG Air Max branding features to the tongue with Flash Crimson Red swooshes to the sides with an added Duralon outsole for the ultimate in all day Air Max comfort.

The Nike Air Max 2 Light trainer will be dropping throughout 2019 with its first drop on Friday 11th January 2019 from global Nike stockists such as 43einhalb.com.
