Nike Innovation Presents the Air Max 720 (Release Info)

January 22, 2019

The Nike Air unit just keeps getting bigger and better. Launching on February 1st is the new Nike Air Max 720, dropping in an array of exciting and futuristic colorways. The 720 will take Nike Air 270’s spotlight for the tallest Air unit to be created. When the Nike Air 270 dropped last February, we had 8 reasons to go and buy it. This time it looks like we have even better reasons to get the Air Max 720.

Nike Air Max 720 Characteristics

#1 Environmentally Friendly

The number one reason this shoe is a big deal is that it is comprised of over 70% of recycled waste. It’s so perfectly timed in light of the #10yearchallenge, where many people have reposting images of the earth 10 years ago versus now. It might not be saving the ocean directly, unlike Parley x Adidas, but it is encouraging the idea of reusing manufactured waste as a resource.

#2 Futuristic Aesthetic

Although it’s not self-lacing like the Nike Adapt BB, this brand new sneaker has all the elements we imagine would go into a futuristic style. From the construction to the choice of colors, we applaud Nike for their work. Even the names of some of these colorways inspire a dreamy getaway.

#3 Innovative Lifestyle Comfort

Nike’s Innovation team brings us a new twist with this sneaker, creating the tallest Air unit available, even taller than last year’s Nike Air Max 270. Similar to the Air Max 270, this shoe is not made for performance, rather it’s a lifestyle sneaker. All for $180 USD.
