Nike’s First Wave of Air Max 720s Are Releasing Next Month

During September’s Q1 earnings conference call, Nike unveiled the Air Max 720, the newest member in its Air Max line, which was slated to release sometime this spring. Right on schedule, the latest  model is ready to launch beginning next month.

The 720 will boast the tallest Air Max unit to date at 38 millimeters with a 360-degree see-through cushioning system. This record was previously set by last year’s Air Max 270, which stood at 32 millimeters. By having the tallest Air unit in the heel, the 720 is able to provide the most spring of any Air Max shoe. The sole is made from more than 75 percent recycled manufacturing waste. The runner will feature a mesh material on the upper with two additional mesh pods on the sides and heel for breathability.

The first two colorways of the sneaker are inspired by the Northern Lights. The night and day versions will be available Feb. 1 on the SNKRS app and at select Nike retailers globally.
