Year: 2007

For a lot of Euro fans, the Air Max Light on store shelves was the first experience of handling an Air Max design and this 1989 middleground between AM1 and AM90 was huge in Europe amongst kids in the know. The '90 was huge but this was a cult classic with that dual density sole and the ridged panels. The retro doesn't do the OG 100 percent justice in terms of shape, but that white, red, grey and black is one of the greatest colorways ever and it was good to see that the reissue wasn't in the hands of a limited-edition hungry few. As a result, this shoe got a new lease on life with a mass audience and size? and JD's new colorways have been largely excellent too.
