We are starting to see a direct lineage between basketball and running with Jordan Brand stuffing their silhouettes into Air Max designs as the CMFT Max series. Nike’s newest on the block looks to bring Air Max elements to the table also as the Nike Air Phenom.
While very subtle the lace plate and Air Max sole do give off that Air Max feel. The rest of the sneaker is a pure performance model. The upper features a wide mouth mesh that looks to be a descendant of Torch technology while the rest of the sneaker has a leather and nubuck build. Dressed mainly in black the Varsity Red accents combine with a White toe and contrast stitches to make this a nice looking model.
