Rooted in sporty athletics DNA, the Air Max Dawn is thoughtfully made from at least 20% recycled materials by weight. Graphic lines and material blocking bring a fresh update inspired by the jogakbo, or patchwork, techniques often used in the traditional Korean textile art of bojagi. Soft synthetic suede, airy textiles and Max Air units in the heels keep these kicks true to their vintage running roots. Step into them and experience a new dawn.
Nike Air Max Origins
Revolutionary Air technology first made its way into Nike footwear in 1978. In 1987, the Air Max 1 debuted with visible Air technology in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air cushioning—suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking colour combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
