Jordan Brand Borrows Nike’s Latest Innovative Cushioning Technology For The Futuristic Proto-Max 720

Despite countless innovations, when it comes to Nike’s various cushioning systems, Air Max has always been at the forefront. Nike introduced the Air-sole unit back in 1979 as a part of the Tailwind running shoe for athletes. The very first print advertisement for the Air Max referred to it as a “Revolution.” Thirty-one years later, the revolutionary model has evolved into the Air Max 720, Nike’s latest casual/lifestyle shoe to join the line, which comes equipped with 720 degrees of Air cushioning. Inspired by the upcoming model, Jordan Brand has introduced a brand new version of their own that they have named the Jordan Proto-Max 720.

Back in August, Frank Cooker shared photos on Instagram (@frankcooker) of an Air Jordan 1 variation equipped with Nike’s REACT cushioning. In case you are wondering who Frank Cooker is, he is apparently Jordan Brand’s NRG footwear designer. Not only was this variation equipped with React cushioning, it resembled the Nike REACT Element 87 to a great extent, including adhesive claps, dual tongues, and semi-translucent uppers. In fact, this hybrid variation looked nothing like the traditional Air Jordan 1. It will even have a different name and that is not all. Next year’s Air Jordan releases 2019 will include five brand new models featuring the REACT cushioning. Continue reading 2019 Will Mark The Retail Debut Of A Nike Air Jordan REACT Range
