According to our inside intel, Nike Air Max Thea trainers are some of the most searched-for trainers on Google and Net-a-Porter. These sneakers are designed to be worn outside of the gym, and they have been spotted on Kendall Jenner and Olivia Palermo as well as some of our favorite bloggers, such as Lucy Williams. They have, by proxy, become considered something of a modern classic.
"The Nike Air Max Thea first dropped in 2014 and is therefore quite a recent take on the absolutely iconic Air Max 1, which first came out in 1988," says trainer expert Neal Heard, author of the book Trainers. "You have to remember that the Air Max 1 was revolutionary: Inspired by Paris's Pompidou Centre, its inside-out construction made it the first shoe to visibly display the internal workings of the internal air-cushioning system." This latest addition to the Air Max family has a slimmer, daintier style, and the minimalistic black, white, and gray styles have become part of a new signature Scandi look.
The Nike Air Max Thea is now available in a rainbow of colors and the fly-knit finish, with the bubblegum pink, metallic bronze, and all-white iterations being on our long must-have list. Kendall Jenner owns the desert sand version, while Olivia Palermo favors the classic black-and-white model. Which will you choose?
