NIke Air Max Light Vintage QS (Blue & Red)

It’s been about four years since we last saw the reissue of the Air Max Light with OG and new colour options getting a lot of coverage while slipping under the radar somewhat.

Back again for a Quickstrike release, the Air Max Light gets the Nike Vintage treatment and this time it looks as if the beautiful design of the AM Light has been given a better representation. This release captures some of the essence found on the original Air Max Light design back in 1989 with the slim shape and colourways, which come in the choice of either blue or red. The vintage treatment here should provide an appealing aesthetic to Nike running fanboys and girls with a nod to the original models natural ageing aesthetic. It’s an excellent release, although the use of yellow around the Air unit makes this release fall short of near perfect, and great to see Nike bring back an Air Max Light retro that provides a truer representation of an excellent design.

Available from Urban Industry now.
