Nike "Engineered Mesh"

01/14/2013

Walking the fine line between updating a classic model, while still staying true to the original design is something Nike has mastered. We have already see a molded Vac Tech upper on the Air Force 1, seamless Hyperfuse construction on Air Max models, and Zoom Air implemented into the Nike Dunk. Next up for Nike, "Engineered Mesh." Lighter and stronger than traditional mesh, Engineered Mesh was first used on performance running sneakers. It has the capability to be constructed with varying perforation patterns, which allows for "zoned" construction. Not only does that mean that tighter patterns can be used on the upper where durability is needed, and looser patterns where ventilation is key, but it also adds a lot of design versatility. Check out Nike's latest innovation on classic Air Max models, including the Air Max 1, Air Max 95, and Air Max 97 now at Sneakerhead.

Originally released in '95, the Air Jordan XI is synonymous with Michael Jordan's return to basketball and the Chicago Bulls' NBA all-time best 72-win season. They are available in several colorways, with this Black/Varsity Red-White model often referred to as the "Breds" or "Playoffs" edition. This extremely sought-after and iconic sneaker features a black Cordura upper with wraparound patent leather, rope laces, carbon fiber spring plate, white midsole, and a red translucent outsole.

Nike Air Trainer 1 "Chlorophyll"

10/24/2012

The iconic Nike Air Trainer 1 in its original "Chlorophyll" colorway is back. Initially released in 1987, the Air Trainer 1 is one of Tinker Hatifield's first sneaker designs. The story behind the first athletic cross-trainer ever created began when Hatfield was noticing people at his local gym carrying multiple shoes in their gym bag. He witnessed people do weight training in one pair shoes, then change shoes for cardio activities. So, Hatfield decided to create a sneaker that would excel in every facet of the workout regime. When Nike chose two-sport athlete Bo Jackson to endorse the Air Trainer 1 in commercials while participating in every sport under the sun, it was a perfect match. Famous tennis player John McEnroe even laced up the Air Trainer 1. Simply put, it's a coveted Nike classic that's a must for any sneakerhead.
