ABOUT THE NIKE BEAUTIFUL X POWERFUL COLLECTION
Celebrating powerful women in sport, this collection honors the athletes who pushed boundaries, changed attitudes and emerged victorious. This season takes inspiration from one of the first female marathoners, Joan Benoit Samuelson, who reshaped the running world when she grabbed the gold in 1984.
Nike Air Max Origins
Nike's revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in the late '70s. In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort— suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Nike Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking color combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
