One of the most famous elements on the upcoming pair is the Air Unit in the sole. It all started in 1987 when Nike released a new model. Nike called it the Air Max 1 and it was the first sneaker to reveal the Air Unit in the sole.

The Air Max 1 led to great success and was used as an inspiration for various models over the years. The Air Unit can also be found on the Air Max 90. On the Cotton Candy, this element is surrounded by a blue accent. The midsole itself is white, but is completed with a blue outsole.

Furthermore, the model has an upper where different shades of pink and blue come together. The base of the silhouette is made of mesh and comes dressed in a white jacket. Over the mesh, beige overlays are placed, these are made of leather.
