For Air Max Day ’24, 24 of the Best Nike Air Maxes

A retrospective of the quintessentially Swoosh silhouette's best.


Much of Nike’s present catalogue can be traced back to three archetypes: the Nike Air Jordan 1, Air Force 1, and the Air Max 1. Just like the Jordan and Air Force 1 lines have produced countless successors, the Air Max 1 is equally fecund.

From the Air Max 90, 95, and 97 to offshoots like the Tailwind, Plus, and 180, the Air Max family tree boasts an impressive lineage spanning thousands, attesting to the genius of Tinker Hatfield’s original design. Thus we have Air Max Day.

What is Air Max Day?

We celebrate and commemorate greatness with designated days like Mamba Day for the late Kobe Bryant. In the same vein, with its rich history and indubitable influence on (sneaker) culture, a day dedicated to the Air Max is apropos, recognizing the groundbreaking shoe that introduced the world to visible Air cushioning technology.

When is Air Max Day?

Back in 2014, 26 March was inaugurated as Air Max Day, exactly 27 years since its debut in 1987. Following editions have introduced new colorways, new collaborations, or a new silhouette; the Swoosh’s commitment to the continual evolution of Air technology.

What sneakers are releasing on Air Max Day 2024?

Last year saw the return of the Nike Air Max 1 OG “Big Bubble”, and this year will see the model return in a Sail, Royal Blue, and Volt palette in the form of the Nike Air Max 1 ‘86 “Air Max Day”. Also part of the rollout is the reintroduction of atmos’ Nike Air Max 2090 SP “Duck Camo” and the “Reverse Duck Camo” Nike Air Max 90.

The Nike Air Max Dn launching on Air Max Day 2024

For the pièce de résistance, Nike Air Max Day 2024 will debut the brand-new Nike Air Max Dn with the “All Day” and “All Night” colorways at the vanguard. However on the collaborative front, Supreme has gotten first dibs having released the Supreme x Nike Air Max Dn in “Black” and in the iconic “Silver Bullet” makeup earlier in February.

The Air Max has always embodied Nike’s forward-thinking philosophy, with Air Max Day as much a celebration of its past…

These pairs, like the Staple x Nike Air Max 90 “Navigation Pack”, Parra x Patta x Nike Air Max 1 “Cherrywood”, and the Nike Air Max 1 “Solar Daisy” are so exclusive and exquisite, owners wouldn’t even consider selling them.
