Regarded by many sneakerheads to be the best new Swoosh sneaker of 2019, the Air Max 200 Bordeaux takes inspiration from a ton of Nike models both from the past and in the present. First, you’ll notice that the midsole is heavily inspired by the Air Max 180. This classic set up is juxtaposed by an extremely contemporary upper that’s a nod to the brand new Air Max 270 React that launched earlier this summer.
Featuring a no sew design, it leaves the earthy brown upper sleek and streamlined as if it’s something straight from the future. Pops of blue make their way to the tongue, while the top eyestays are painted in a yellow hue, providing the shoe with a pop of contrast that’s certainly hard to ignore.
