Attaching a descriptor like deluxe to a name as big as Air Max is always a dangerous game. The dictionary definition of deluxe is just “luxurious or sumptuous; of a superior kind,” but when the word is attached to an existing entity, it implies that there is something more to offer than what we are already familiar with. In other words, it’s a big promise to live up to.
The Air Max Deluxe lives up to that promise. Originally released in the late 90s, the Air Max Deluxe was tasked with leading the Air Max range into a new century. The Air Max Deluxe built off of the familiar full length Air unit made famous by the Air Max 97. A snug fitting neoprene upper with structure providing woven fiber strands sporting the miniaturized branding of the era is backed with a TPU caging and a molded heel. The design prefigured the move towards minimalist free running models by several years.
