This year, Air Max Month had a lot to offer. Nike revived the Nike Air Max 90 "Bacon", and next to it was even a completely new silhouette. The Nike Air Max Pre-Day was part of the main theme and took centre stage for a long time. But those were not the only highlights of the day. Nike showed a collaborative Nike Air Max 1 with Travis Scott for a very brief moment.

Then, there were also revealed leaks about a very different silhouette. Days earlier, official images of a Nike Air Max Genome appeared, which was then quietly announced and now slowly appearing on the release calendar.

The North American sportswear giant is adding a new running shoe to its revolutionary Air Max line. Really, Nike doesn't seem to put much emphasis on the silhouette at the beginning, but slowly, it turns out to be a fresh model. New lines and shapes give Nike's 44-year history a new approach, considering that sneakerheads are currently rather behind chunky sneakers.

Style - Sporty Sneakers with Maximum Cushioning

At the beginning, Nike announced several colourways — a rather unusual strategy, considering the last few releases. Some colourways usually announce a silhouette and then multiply over a longer period of time. We now take a look at two colourways.

The first colourways include a Nike Air Max Genome "Iron Grey" and a "Bright Mango". The former comes with a summer-ready colourway. The base and part of the overlays take on dark "Iron Grey" shades for a stealthy look.

Next to this, a few orange hits then line up to adorn the middle panels, as well as a large part of the outsoles. Materials chosen include lightweight synthetic elements for a sporty look and high breathability.

A rather clean base is offered by the friendly Nike Air Max Genome "Bright Mango" for women. The pair has a bright texture due to the white panels in the front, as well as the back. The side Swooshes, upper laces, and midsoles also get the hue. The feather-light look is then added with a robust Air cushioning for maximum and responsive cushioning with every step.

Numerous sneakers have already received the legendary Air technology, but on the forward-thinking AM Genome, the Air unit has a much sportier feel. In addition, the Air unit in the sneaker is highly reminiscent of the full-length Air Max cushioning in the LeBron 8.

Technical Details

You can say a lot about the style of the Nike Air Max Genome, but even more about the technical details. There is a lot of technology behind the uncomplicated look. The fresh look was originally inspired by sneakers from the 2000s and is made from at least 20% recycled material by weight. So, you're doing something good for the environment while showcasing a sporty style.

But the best feature for many fans will probably be the full-length Air unit. The comfort of responsive cushioning and lightweight uppers are a perfect combination, while rubber soles for high traction round out the overall design of the sneakers.

Conclusion on the Nike Air Max Genome "Iron Grey" and "Bright Mango"

The retro-inspired Nike Air Max Genome is a new sneaker from Nike with Air units throughout. We especially love the slim shape and the sustainable approach with recycled material — another step for a better world. The price of 170€ for a sustainable and comfortable sneaker is also justified, in our opinion. You can already buy both models at Nike. You can find the links here.
