Walking on air: Nike’s new Air Max 720 sneakers are comfy beyond belief
Spring in your step
Since kicks became fashun, the sneaker market has become pretty cutthroat; athletic megabrands, nostalgic shoemakers and fresh indie names exist in an endless, mad scramble to one-up each other. This spring, Nike has literally raised the bar with its new Air Max 720s, which boast a 38mm-tall air bag (the brand’s previous record holder rang in at a measly 32mm).
Beyond their height, the Air Max 720’s air bag runs the full-length of the shoe, designed as it was for ordinary human steps and not sound barrier-breaking strides. Each wavily constructed pair — recalling the natural beauty of the aurora borealis or molten lava flows — is also made of at least 75% recycled material. Bouncy, comfy, and waste-conscious. Colour us impressed.
