The Nike Air Max 720 Surfaces in Engineered Mesh Build

Last week, we gave you all a look at the upcoming Air Max 720, which will bring Nike’s newest cushioning unit. Now, the shoe has surfaced in a new build.

Initially, the Air Max 720 was teased by sneaker blogs and then, nearly immediately, leaked by @bubblekoppe — Instagram’s Air Max addict. Today, overseas leakers spotted the Air Max 720 decked out with an engineered mesh upper, not the seemingly neoprene build that first leaked.

The new full-length 720 Air Max unit mimics the aesthetics of the Air Max 97’s full-length unit but wraps up onto the upper (why that is is still unclear, it could be for lateral stability). Like the Air Max 270, which debuted Nike’s tallest-ever Air Max unit, it is expected that this upcoming Air Max 720 will not be for performance running. Instead, it will likely be geared towards casual and all-day wear.

There is no official word yet on when to expect the upcoming Air Max 720. Of course, we will keep you informed with updates.

Leaked photos — often shot on potato cam — don’t usually do upcoming shoes justice but what do you think of the Air Max 720 so far? Sound off below.

      1. These seriously look like some future tech. I’m not saying I’d buy them,but they do look really great.

  1. I really like the EM version here. Just hope the bubble is cleaner looking in hand as the pics here make the air bubble cushioning look dirty.
