The Rise and Fall of the Sun Inspired Nike’s New Air Max 720 Sneakers

Since Nike unveiled its Air Max 720 during last year’s Q1 earnings conference call, the futuristic running model has generated a tremendous amount of buzz, with sneaker fans finally getting their chance to pick up the shoe this month.

Pushing the limits of Nike’s Air Max line, the silhouette boasts the tallest visible Air unit to date, which is 6 millimeters taller than any before it. The kicks feature the first full-length cushioning system that surrounds the entirety of the wearer’s underfoot, which is promised to deliver all-day comfort. The cushioning system will also reuse more than 70 percent of recycled manufacturing waste.
