Nike Air Max Thea
In response to the continued demand for more Air Max versions for women, Nike decided in 2013 to release a ladies-only Air Max model. In the Air Max Thea the Nike designers combined the slim top view of the Air Max 1 with the overall silhouette of the Air Max 90 to create a sneaker that is ideally tailored to the needs of the ladies. Clear lines and a perfect choice of materials are prominent highlights. This model has a much flatter toe box than on other members of the Air Max lineup, and the Air window is smaller for aesthetic appeal, but still offers the same cushioning properties as those of the shoe’s big brothers. The Air Max Thea is available in a variety of versions, including the familiar classic rendition featuring a mix of synthetic overlays and mesh. At regular intervals Nike also releases premium versions of the Thea. These are made using premium leather and using an elaborate one-piece construction technique in the forefoot section. For 2017 the Nike Air Max Thea was given the lightweight treatment consisting of the new Ultra midsole and an all-over Flyknit upper, making it the perfect sneaker for the summer.
