This old school racer is built for speed

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

In 1981, #nike created a new racing silhouette as part of its effort to expand its running footwear offerings. This shoe was designed for the serious road racer — typically a mid or forefoot striker. It featured the ultimate in cushioning technology of that time: Air. And it was only the second shoe (after 1979’s #nike Air Tailwind) to do so. For the newly designed racer, called the Curved Air Racer in initial prototyping, the full-length Air-Sole unit featured specially gauged air pressures throughout the foot that intended to optimize performance during a race. Prior to launch the shoe’s name changed to the Air Mariah (some say to be named after the wind).
