About Nike Air Max Classic BW's
The Nike Air Max Classic comes in men?s and women?s sizes, offering all of the performance characteristics and sportswear styling that you would expect from this iconic range.
The shoes feature Nike?s iconic air bubble in the heel, and a rubberised branded badge. The Nike branded tab also appears on the tongue, and the side of the trainer. As well as the style and superior quality, the Air Max Classic has some excellent, unique features that really set the shoe apart from other brands of trainers in a similar price bracket.
The upper is constructed of mesh, with a leather overlay, designed to support your foot and make the trainer extremely durable. The shoe is designed with sports in mind, and has excellent ventilation. The phylon mid sole offers incredible comfort and cushioning whether you?re walking or running. This lightweight, responsive material was originally used in walking boots, to protect feet from fatigue.
Nike produce their moulded mid soles by compressing ethylene vinyl acetate foam pellets, heating them up until they expand, and then cooling them in to the mould. This is considered to be a relatively eco-friendly way of producing a mid sole, as there is no chlorine used during the production or moulding of EVA. Nike?s phylon formulation increases the durability of EVA, and is usually considered to be one of the best formulations used to produce mid soles, offering both comfort and strength.
