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.

Nike gives one of their iconic runners an innovative makeover with the Nike Air Max 97 Hyperfuse. Decked out in its original Metallic Silver/Varsity Red-Black colorway, which was inspired by the Japanese Bullet Train, this 2012 version sports a seamless and lightweight Hyperfuse upper. Nike has implemented Hyperfuse on many of their classic Air Max models, including the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, and Air Max 95, but never before has the creation look so identical to the original. The Nike Air Max 97 also features a full-length visible Max Air unit, three reflective lines around the upper, and a metallic "Air Max" heel pull tab. Enjoy modern technology with a classic look thanks to the Nike Air Max 97 Hyperfuse now at Sneakerhead.

Although using crepe soles on a Nike Air Max 1 is not new, most sneakerheads would agree, it's always welcomed. The last time we saw an Air Max 1 crepe creation was in 2004, and it was part of the "Hemp Pack" (one of the most sought-after sneakers of that year). This year, Nike not only used crepe on the soles, but they paid attention to the details everywhere else on this Nike Air Max 1 Premium model. Currently available in Sail or Black colorways (with a Dark Cinder release coming later this year), they feature a tonal upper that is constructed with a combination of leather and canvas. Then, Nike added pony hair to the Swoosh. With a simple and classy look, they can fill the role in dressier settings. Many are even comparing them to the Clarks Wallabee. All I know is that this Nike Air Max 1 is a must cop.

The Nike Air Max 95 really needs no introduction. The iconic sneakerhead favorite was originally introduced in 1995 with a concept that mimicked the human body: a midsole that represented the spine, panels that represented muscles, loopholes and straps represented the ribs and the mesh represented the skin. Nike's Air Max 95 running shoe has made a return to select Nike Sportswear retail shelves this Summer 2010 in a number of original Air Max 95 colorways, in addition to the "Blue Slate" Air Max 95. The running shoe uses a nice pattern to separate the colors. White can be seen on most of the sneaker, including the midsole and toe area. Red is put into use on areas such as the lace holders, Air Max unit, and the tongue label. The outsole is done up in black, leaving the rest of the sneaker for two shades of grey.

Nike has released the Air Max 1 retro running shoe in its original Varsity Royal colorway as a Quickstrike release in the US. With so much success from the 2009 release of the Nike Air Max 1 in its Varsity Red colorway, Nike decided to release the Varsity Blue colorway just in time for the summer months. The retro running shoe features a neutral grey and white upper, consisting of both suede and mesh. Varsity blue suede works along the base of the shoe, as well as the Swoosh logo. Blue is also seen on the top lace eyelets, tongue badge, and heel branding. As some of you may remember, this Nike Air Max 1 Varsity Blue colorway was only released overseas back in 2009. Other retro releases have only been in women's sizes, making it difficult for many to obtain this iconic piece of Nike history.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup is right around the corner, and as you may expect, Nike has been releasing footwear to coincide with the world's most watched sporting event. The World Cup-inspired "True Colors" pack's releases continue to trickle in at stateside accounts. This Nike Air BW Gen II retro running shoe was designed by South African artist Kronk as a tribute to his homeland and the host country of the upcoming games. The artist's influence on these was limited, but can be seen in the custom lettering on the tongue. Green lettering also appears on the heel. For this retro running shoe, Nike coupled its Torch technology while the remainder of the shoe is completely white. Torch, mesh and suede are all used, and a bit of grey can be seen on the midsole.

Many runner fans were ecstatic to hear about these particular Air max's making a return. The Air Max 95 "Blue Slate" is a prized colorway of a classic sneaker, so it only makes sense that its return would create serious buzz. Nike's "Blue Slate" Air Max 95 has made a triumphant return to retail shelves this season from Nike Sportswear. The nickname "Slate" comes from entirely the colorway, which is White/New Green-Blue Slate-Black. The retro running shoe features white uppers and a black outsole. Blue accents are seen on areas such as the lace holders and mid-panel. While these retro running shoes were originally released back in 2005 the Air Max 95 "Slates" the new released version is different than the last time we saw these, as black has replaced navy on the top layer, and the lower two rows are the same shade of blue, instead of being slightly different.

The Nike Air Max '97 retro running shoe comes in a metallic silver/varsity red-white-black colorway, which is very reminiscent of the classic Air Max '97 retro running shoe. The Air Max '97 is certainly one shoe that is ill-defined when mentioning style approach and popularity. Closely resembling 2005's Euro exclusive colorway with a metallic silver coloration rounding the toe area and red accents, the sport red is well read across the upper with black segments that contrast the two releases. This newly released Air Max '97 gets all the usual fixings: metallic silver leather, 3m paneling, varsity red mesh tongue, and Air Max sole. The color blocking follows the waves that are integrated into the design of the upper. The shoe's lining is white mesh, a nice touch especially if one plans to actually run in these. These are destined to make a believer out of any naysayers.
