AIR MAX MONDAYS: Nike Air Max Flair


As of recent one of the things that I have been hearing is that the sneaker world lacks some originality…the sneakerheads out there are looking for change. Though I can see where they are coming from with almost everything that was decent getting the “retro” treatment, there have been some new joints that have come out that have not gotten any attention at all. One of the biggest issues with the sneaker scene today is a lot of people feel as though there is a lack of originality in the game.


Well, fear no more…check out the Nike Air Max Flair. Let’s be honest right now…you have never seen a Nike Air Max like this one before. It is hard to make out what the influence of where they got the concept for these sneakers, but it works! This sneaker will definitly have people talking about where they based it off of and that is part of the fun about it. In my opinion being a soccer player it reminds me of the some of the soccer cleats that Nike released a couple years back based on the placement of the laces.


When you do your research online on the Nike Air Max Flair you will see that most have stated that it has influences from the Presto and Footscape. Like most of the recent Nike Air Max to be released this sneaker has a full sole Visible Air Unit that pretty much lets you know that it is going to be very comfortable shoe. One of the stand out features of the Nike Air Max Flair is the giant “AIR” written from across the toe box to the middle upper portion of the shoe. This feature is very similar to the giant “AIR” on the iconic sneaker the Nike Air More Uptempo.


Regardless of what you may think or feel about the Nike Air Max Flair…it will have you talking for sure, which is always a great thing in the sneaker world. Rocking the boat of consistency helps the market reflect and observe what the mass are looking for and leads to much new sneakers to look forward to.


These joints are going to be on sale VERY soon so keep an eye out for them because you can look at them and now that there will a lot of great colourways plastered all over these kicks…
