The very popular Nike Zoom Air debuted over 20 years ago. According to Nike, the Zoom Air took over a decade of research and development. However, many agree that this was worth it! The low-profile cushioning that was created was originally meant for athletes of every caliber that want to feel the responsiveness of their steps under their feet.
The original three Zoom Air styles that were debuted were the Nike Air Go LWP basketball shoe, the Nike Air Marauder football cleat, and soon after that, the Nike Air Zoom LWP running shoe.
The idea behind the sole is that when the persons foot touches down, tensile fibres compact in order to cushion the impact before swiftly springing back to their original state. This creates an explosive, powerful response off the ground.
The most popular Air Zoom models for everyday wear.
However, the Nike Zoom Air went on its own path and ended up creating shoes that not only walk fantastic (if it's good enough for an athlete it sure as hell is on the streets), but also look amazing. Many models are very popular at the moment, such as the Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Cage, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 37 and the Nike Air Zoom Terra Tiger 6.
Many of us love the Jordan 1 High Zoom CMFT. However, its popularity has overtaken the model, and now gets sold out instantly almost every time. On the 7th of May 2021, the Air Jordan 1 High Zoom CMFT 'To My First Coach' will release. So, don't wait too long, and enter the raffle to not miss the chance to win this fantastic pair!

However, in this blog I want to focus on the 3 most-seen Zoom Air models in streetwear: the Zoom Air Fire, the SB Zoom Blazer, and the SB Zoom Janoski.
Zoom Air Fire
The Zoom Air Fire originally launched as a WMNS-model. I personally (a woman) normally prefer men's shoe models, as I have bit wider feet. Yet, these fit me perfectly well, so honestly, guys: don't let the "WMNS" tag hold you back! Because these cool retro shoes just rock!

SB Zoom Blazer
The Zoom technology is also a beloved one in the skateboarding world. The SB Zoom Blazer Mid has taken a heritage design, and adapted it to the needs of the modern skateboarder. But you don't need to skateboard to be able to rock these beauties! The flexible sole and soft cushioning also works great for everyday wear.

SB Zoom Blazer Low Pro GT
The SB Zoom Blazer Low Pro GT has been rebuilt using the insights from Grant Taylor. These shoes are a fresh take on the classic Nike SB Zoom models. This updated design has improved higher taping, in order to provide more durability.

Stefan Janoski's signature shoe has been built for daily use for over 10 years already. This specific Janoski RM model pairs durable suede with a flexible lightweight sole in order to create easy walking, and if wanted, skateboarding, all day long.
