Nike Air Max Icons FootballX Collection

Air to the Max. The Air Max Day pre-drinks power on at pulsating pace as Nike shoot straight fire at their small-sided collection of FootballX silos. Transformed as tributes to iconic Air Max designs ahead of Air Max Day on March 26, it's streetwear meets street football in special edition style.

As with the on-pitch Air Max Icons Collection, the FootballX series borrows visuals from four of the most heralded Air Max silhouettes and applies them to the Mercurial, Hypervenom, Magista and Tiempo. Equipped with both indoor and turf soles, the full FootballX quartet are tweaked in technology from their cleated brothers, while only the MercurialX and TiempoX have alternative aesthetics.

The MercurialX Proximo swaps red finishing details for blue as it takes influence from the Air Max 90, while the HypervenomX Proximo mirrors the distinctive design of the famed Nike Air Max 95 shoe. The MagistaX Proximo receives shades of Air Max 97 vibes and a Lunarlon sole for added comfort, a feature it shares with the Air Max 1 inspired TiempoX Proximo. The TiempoX is also altered slightly from the studded edition as it dons a splash of red detailing over the on-pitch blue. Air Max month just keeps giving.
