NIKE, Inc., a footwear, apparel, equipment and accessories company, has announced the launch of Air Max classics with Engineered Mesh.
According to the company, Nike Engineered Mesh has new proprietary mesh patterns that enhance the functionality while retaining the overall look of the original models. It enables both tight and loose perforation patterns to replace traditional color blocking, gradients and overlay placement.
Originally used in performance running footwear, the varying performance patterns allow for 'zoned' construction: Tighter patterns are placed where durability is paramount while looser patterns are used where breathability is required. The result is a more breathable, flexible and durable Air Max family - lighter and leaner than earlier models, the company said.
