Editor’s Notes: 2018 saw the return of several ’90s favorites and so it is heartening to see a beloved ’80s classic rear its head in 2019. The Nike Air Max Light returns this month, rendered in its original clean colorway. The sneaker debuted in 1989 and is an exemplar of effortless colorblocking, often emulated today.
In fact, the Air Max Light also served as inspiration for silhouettes like the Air Max 90 and more recently, the Air Max Deluxe. It would seem the market is perfectly primed for the return of this classic kick. The Air Max Light hits stores January 10, but be sure to stay tuned for more details, such as the potential release of a navy blue colorway.
