Editor’s Notes: The collaborative Air Max Light from size? x Nike takes its inspiration “from interplanetary exploration, light and reflectivity, and most importantly, zero gravity.” These themes are most obvious in the reversed heel cup Swoosh branding.
A semi-translucent, stretch-woven fabric crafts the toe-box and heel-surround, overlaid by panels of nubuck. Continuing the multi-textured aesthetic, 3M reflective accents adorn the dark grey midfoot Swoosh and Team Orange lace and heel panels. A comfortable foam midsole houses the heel’s visible Air unit, coupled with a rubber outsole for traction.
