The Nike Air Max Timeline: Part 2

Have you already read the first part of the Nike Air Max Timeline? If not, then by all means do it - on our Newsblog you will find everything!

And now: Here we go:

1994 - Nike Air Max 94

The Air Max 1994 enters an unknown territory on our journey through the history of Air Max and is often overlooked or unknown even by the most avid sneaker collectors. So it is essentially a mixture of Air Max Light and the Air Max 93.

Air Max 94

1994 - Nike Air Max 2

The Air Max 2 is a model designed by Tinker Hatfield. Several Air Chambers with different strategic pressures were introduced. The upper, mottled wing and the different coloured Air units in the heel together form an incredible design.


1994 - Air Max 2 Light

Do we know each other? Just like the original Air Max, the company with the swoosh, has developed a lighter version of the Air Max 2. However, unlike the 1 Series, the Air Max 2 Light proved to be more popular than its predecessor model.


1995 - Nike Air Max 95

It is almost impossible not to see the Air Max 95 in stock. A sneaker with a subtle and striking shape. Designed by Sergio Lozano, the Air Max 95 was developed with human anatomy in mind. Looks funny, but also cool and slightly rough. It is important to note that the Air Max 95 is an important milestone in the Air Max Timeline. As the complete revision of the design, it shows the confidence of the brand in its relationship with consumers.


1996 - Nike Air Max 96

An original, chunky sneaker. The Air Max 96 has a lot to do with the most popular silhouettes of today, because the minimal branding, layered uppers and bulky sole are so popular.


1997 - Nike Air Max 97

Finally a full length air cushioning. The Air Max 97, designed by Christian Tressler and inspired by drops of water making waves in a pond, is the favourite of the sneakerhead community. While the OG colour is often referred to as the "Silver Bullet", the colour was actually inspired by the silver shine of mountain bikes.


1998 - Nike Air Max 98

So if there is an Air Max shoe that illustrates the fashion of the 90s, it is the Air Max 98. 1998 Kickz is one of the most eye-catching releases in Nike history, with a mismatched design and strong contrasting colours.
