Model: Air Max2 Light

Release Date: Available now

Price: ¥15,120 JPY (approximately $135 USD)


Editor’s Notes: As the younger sibling to 1989’s original Air Max Light, Nike’s re-issued Air Max2 Light has just been released in a stealthy, all-black colorway. Leading on from brighter colorways such as “University Gold” and OG “Blue Lagoon,” the latest iteration will certainly make this otherwise unconventional design more accessible.

Finished off with a thick tooling system and supportive Air Max heel unit, Nike’s latest addition to its retro-styled fleet is on good course to become a summer rotation staple. Head over to Japanese multi-brand retailer, COVERCHORD, to pick yourself up a pair.
