First released in 1987, Nike‘s Air Max 1 — the sneaker that launched the Air Max line — was originally designed by Tinker Hatfield. Inspired by Paris’ Pompidou Center and its unique design, this was the first-ever sneaker to feature visible air chambers – a huge success for the Swoosh.

Today, the Air Max line is one of Nike’s most popular offerings, with silhouettes such as the Air Max 90, Air Max 95, and Air Max 98 forming the basis of any respectable sneakerhead’s rotation. Loved by hip-hop and techno lovers alike, the Air Max is also the only sneaker marked with its own special celebration, with March 26 recognized by sneakerheads worldwide as “Air Max Day”.

Still, if you happen to be a woman who wears anything below a US size 6, you’ll know all too well that finding the perfect pair of sneakers is a far harder task. Men tend to get more selection when it comes to the hottest collabs and colorways, leaving women’s Air Max options a far harder shopping task. For those of you looking to add some steezy Air Max to your rotation, however, fear not. Here we’ve used our expertise to bring you some of the best women’s Air Max kicks available right now, with options starting at a US 4.

Including both US and EU releases, our selection below features eye-catching releases such as a pair of black and gold Air Max 97 QS, some fiery gradient Air Max Plus OG, and even a pair of Swarovski-embellished gold Air Max 97 LX.

For those looking for an everyday pair, however, we’ve also included super-wearable, low-key options such as a pair of all-black Air Max Deluxe SE – one of last year’s stand out kicks – plus a retro pair of grey and black Air Max 180s.
