While MZ was on board with the Air Max 2012 off top, I was more on the fence about this year’s model. The combination of the colorblocking plus the webbing was too busy for my liking. Every new year brings a new Air Max model that takes me a while to latch on to…until the Livestrong colorway drops. As always, the dark grey dulls the shoe out just enough to bring it back to basics while the signature use of varsity maize throughout the Max Air unit and soles adds just the right hint of life to make them stand out.
The AM12 Livestrong’s release in February.
