Are you a lover of the original Nike Air Max shoes? Air Max is arguably one of the most famous lines of sports shoes available on the market nowadays. Most fans love the classic version with its iconic silhouette, however, the Air Max 97 with Hyperfuse takes everything that’s good about the classic Air Max shoes and enhances it thanks to technology upgrades. The result is a shoe that has the same stylish look but is much more comfortable and wearable, and thus gives people the best of both worlds.
While this is not one of the newest pairs of Nike sneakers, it has a classic look that will never fail and you can still purchase the Air Max 97 range in stores today. You can say that these trainers have stood the test of time, and that is what you should be looking for in a good pair of trainers.
Hyperfuse technology has been extremely successful for Nike and the Air Max 97 exemplifies this. But what actually is Nike Hyperfuse? This is a technology that involves using three different material layers during the melting process to construct a shoe that is unusually sturdy and boasts improved breathability. There are lots of benefits to be gained by wearing shoes with Nike’s Hyperfuse Technology, such as…
• Supportive Backing – This is thanks to the synthetic material used on the base layer.
• Unbeatable Durability – Ultimately provided by the top layer, which is made from Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) film. Nonetheless, the combination of the three layers fused together is what really ensures the shoe is durable, more durable than shoes made from conventional synthetic leather.
• A Better Finish – Almost all of the stitching on the upper is eliminated.
• More Consistent Fit
• Lightweight Breathability – This is made possible by the mesh used in the middle part of the shoe, which ensures there is maximum airflow into the show, which will keep the wearer’s foot cool.
As you can see, the ‘Hyperfuse’ label is not merely a cool name to vamp up this edition of the Air Max; it actually refers to the technology of the shoe, which is clearly extremely impressive. There is nothing worse than putting on a pair of shoes and feeling your feet instantly sweat and become uncomfortable. Or, how about when you purchase a pair of shoes you have fallen in love with, and within a matter of weeks they are starting to fall apart? It’s a nightmare, right? Well, the design of the Air Max 97 ensures this does not happen.
Nevertheless, whilst this shoe may surpass the technology offered with the original Air Max design, you certainly don’t have to worry about style being compromised in order to achieve it. As mentioned, the Air Max 97 is extremely similar to the classic version, with the only real difference being the mesh upper, which adds a contemporary edge.
