The Nike Air Max 2 Light Is Now Dropping In Blue Lagoon & Laser Orange
Making its grand return this year, the Nike Air Max 2 Light trainer now drops in more OG style colourways for January 2019.
As new sneaker silhouettes come and go, Air Max fans have been lapping up the recent OG re-releases over the past few years. Styles like the Air Max 97, the Air Max 180, the Air Max 98 and now the Air Max 2 Light now make its grand return onto the 2019 sneaker radar. For 2019, the Air Max 2 Light is revived from the Oregon archives with an assortment of OG colourways.
First released in 1994, 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.
25 years later and the sneaker game has certainly changed a lot even though the Air Max story remains as relevant as ever with a re-release straight from the archives. The latest Air Max 2 Light re-release sees a Blue Lagoon, White and Laser Orange version with a combination of suede, mesh and white leather uppers alongside black side swooshes, a ‘Blue Lagoon’ tongue and a white midsole with visible air in ‘Laser Orange’.
The Nike Air Max 2 Light Blue Lagoon and Laser Orange trainer will be dropping globally from Nike stockists such as 43einhalb.com from Friday 18th January 2019. In other recent sneaker news you can also check out the forthcoming OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Max 90 2019 trainer also drops this month.
