It may be easy to take Nike’s Air technology for granted these days. After all, we’ve been able to see them through the windows in our heels ever since the Air Max 1 debuted in 1987. However, Nike had already been using the tech for nearly a decade, ever since aeronautical engineer Frank Rudy approached the company with the idea of how to put air in its cushioning. Yet, it was the Air Max 1 that had fans rabid with enthusiasm for these sneakers. And Nike has continued to respond and deliver with new models featuring improvements and variations using the Air system. Its latest, the Nike Air Max Scorpion Flyknit SE, is no different.

Sporty yet fashionable, the Scorpion Flyknit is the perfect shoe for wearing around town but will serve you perfectly in the gym as well. The Air cushioning has been constructed with the concept of “point-loading,” which improves its comfort, as well as its responsiveness, and forms to your every step. Essentially, by working in tandem with the shoe’s other components, the feeling under your foot is intended to be new and improved, even for long-time Air Max wearers. Likewise, with improved traction in a number of conditions and surfaces, the generative design pattern eliminates any insecurity you might have in your step.

With comfort at the forefront, the Scorpion Flyknit is still a sneaker that taps into Nike’s knack for style, with a Flyknit upper that pairs the soft knit fabric with synthetic leather and is colored in white with a beautiful red and blue Swoosh logo on the side. While it seems like it would have been designed for looks first and foremost, Flyknit itself is actually known for being incredibly strong and stretchy, keeping your foot locked in without being uncomfortable at all.
