Nike may have opted out of its usual exclusive new drops for the fifth annual Air Max Day, but that doesn't mean you can't appreciate this much-loved sneaker franchise with some steezy new rotation additions. And, you may be very glad to know that platforms such as StockX and Stadium Goods are teeming with some of the steeziest Nike Air Max releases available for a fraction of what they once retailed for.
Lovers of all things Swooshed will know that March 26 marks the anniversary of the first ever Air Max 1 release. For those looking to build on their collection of this particular Nike silhouette, colorways currently selling for under their first release price at resale sites include the Easter-ready "Have a Nike Day" AM1 with multi-colored, pastel-hued upper, an "aqua" colorway of 2017, and a 2018 rendition of the classic "Curry" colorway – which has long been one of the most sought-after versions of the shoe.
Those looking to embrace the Air Max in all its retro glory needn't look any further than the recent Light "University Gold" Air Max 2, now only $90 down from $140, while more futuristic models such as a black and purple Air Max 270, metallic two-toned Air Max 97, and even the mega-hyped Skepta-designed Air Max Deluxe of last year can all be copped at great value.
