The Nike Air Max, which was in a nylon/synthetic suede combo with a transparent window for the Max Air-sole unit, had sparked immediate interest and set the ball rolling creating instant hype since it's first released in 1987. As a key product of Nike Air Max, the Air Max 87 gained an increasing popularity among the enthusiastic sneaker collectors worldwide. The Nike Air Max 87 sneaker was released in a variety of colors and fabric combinations which have given it a contemporary flavor. These shoes are expressly designed for athletes with a high degree of technical content. Nike used the soles of the Air Max 90 to reduce money on production of these shoes. Due to the mismatch of the upper to sole, this version has been in high demand to find. It was a very lightweight and breathable Nike running shoe because of its mesh upper. No collection is complete without at least one pair of the Nike Air Max 87 shoes.
