Joining the Air Max 1 and 90 with Essential class releases from Nike Sportswear is the pair that came between them in the historical Max lineage. Introduced as the Air Max II back in 1989, the Nike Air Max Light Essential makes its first appearance here today with this new ladies colorway. They’re vaguely reminiscent of another OG Max runner in the ‘Persian Violet’ Air Classic BW, but the more important historical connection here would seem to be the promise of more AM Lights releasing at NSW retailers around the world. Take a look at some more photos of this pair below, then grab yours at stores like Titolo.The Nike KD 9 Elite has still not been officially introduced by Nike, but today we can get up close and personal with the shoe thanks to some detailed images from atmos. No doubt Kevin Durant’s most advanced signature shoe yet, the KD 9 Elite features a combination of Flyknit and a neoprene collar on the upper for a dynamic, foot-hugging fit and comfort, while it’s all locked down with some serious Flywire cables for the lacing system. The redesigned upper sits atop the same full-length visible Zoom Air cushioned tooling of the standard KD 9.The KD 9 Elite releases tomorrow in Asia, but there is still no word if or when the updated sneaker for Durant’s playoff run will hit US Nike Basketball retailers. Stay tuned to Sneaker News for further updates.
