Happy Air Max Day everyone! In  honor of this most glorious of days, we ran a special unboxing feature on all of the new soccer silos inspired by the most iconic Air Max’s. The Tiempo, Magista, Mercurial Superfly and Hypervenom 3 were all given an Air Max makeover, check out our videos below for more in depth look at each boot.

Nike Tiempo X Air Max 1: The very first Air Max featuring the game-changing, exposed air cushion meets Nike’s tried and true Tiempo. Two classics seamlessly unite.

Nike Mercurial Superfly X Air Max 90: The birth of Nike’s classic infared joins the built-for-speed Mercurial in a fitting mash-up of timeless and modern.

HypervenomX X Air Max 95: The revolutionary 95’s brought us mesh, a unique layered upper and the birth of Volt. The equally innovative HypervenomX serves as the perfect canvas for a 95 aesthetic.

Nike Magista X Air Max 97: The 97’s brought us copious amounts of 3M and a sole dominated almost entirely of that trademark air. The Magistas avant-garde ethos aptly suits the 97’s vibe.


Nike should just change it to Air Max Month. All month long the Swoosh has been murdering the game with releases of retros, flyknit reworks and teasers of new things to come, all in the name of the mighty Air Max. Pop ups have sprouted up worldwide serving as part retail space and Air Max Museums, we were invited to a preview of the one in LA this past weekend. As you’d expect, the space was second to none. Featuring various Air Max installations, like a Nike id station, a timeline of the iconic silos lineage and even a runway where attendees could try out and strut in the new Nike Vapor Max. An open bar, delicious hors d’oeuvres and DJ were the cherry on top. There was also a Q and A with two of the twelve designers hand selected by Nike to compete in a worldwide competition in which the winner would see his or her Air Max design manifested into production. Before the night ended  people were urged to vote for their favorite design on an onsite photo booth.

On March 26th Nike will once again observe “Air Max Day.” In honor of said glorious fake holiday Nike will also drop the “Air Max Day” Collection. The mix of retros, revamps and even the much anticipated VaporMax will release throughout the month of March leading up to the 25th when Nike will likely have some sort of installation or party for the big day. We’re personally hyped on those Flyknit 90’s and atmos 1’s.
