My son gave me a pair of Nike Air Max Motion this past Summer as he invited me to travel to visit Toronto as he knew we would be walking a lot every day there.

Wow, as soon as I saw your article on the internet, I came to read it, as I wear them and I noticed how easy was to walk everyday over 20,000 steps without feeling my legs tired or sore, I need to buy a new pair because after seen the high quality of these shoes, I want to have two pairs ready before the weather gets nice and warm here as I want to keep my walking every day.

Thanks for sharing a good review. 


You’re welcome, Alejandra. And, thanks for dropping by. 

We appreciate it.

Have a lovely day and happy new year in advance


Hey thank you for the great post!  I really enjoyed this post because I do a lot of walking, and I need a good set of shoes to accommodate that!  These shoes look pretty freaking awesome if you ask me!  My only fear would be that the colors would be slightly off, since there have been some people saying they noticed that.  However, given the fact that it’s Nike I would probably still buy the shoes because they have good quality usually.


Good to know your opinion on the Air Max Motion 2. And, we’re glad you like the review.

Thanks for visiting. 

Happy new year in Advance


Nike has always been one of my favorite show products, most of my shoes are Nike and this is mainly because of the kind of gallant nature they provide and also the durability. Nike Air Max Motion 2 is a good one but I’m yet to get it, I obviously can’t buy all Nike shoes, an the colour I think they should work on it, all other things are good. 


Good to know, man. Thanks for dropping by.

I totally agree with you.

Happy new year in advcance

If the color similarity in regards to what you see in your monitor is the only complaint arroound that’s deffinetly something I can deal with (goin black is like the secured bet on this one).

Brilliant colours are great, but as per my understanding, even though it:s part of the experience, there are other factors that are more deterministic than the exact colour matching against screen seen models: 

  – Comfort

  – Breathability

  – Ease of use (when putting them on or taking them of)

  – Shock Absorbance Capacity

 I’ll definitely go for them as my own personal New year’s gift to myself.

Thanks for your review!


I completely agree with you Juan. The colour you seen on the monitor can always be exact same colour of the material. The cameral effect do affect the colour. Anyway, not everybody is complaining about the colour though.

Thanks for visiting. And, happy new year in advance.


Hello Stephen,

Thank you very much for this review, the video showed exactly the shoes. It reviews the expected materials as demonstrated in the video. The upper, out and midsole were properly demonstrated.
Like you said in your article above, you have helped us save time and effort. No need to struggle to get the right product info from Nike.
Once again, thank you.


You’re welcome, man. Thanks for the comment.

Have an amazing day. And, Happy new year in advance.

Thanks for this great review.

Actually, Nike is one of my favorite brands. Air Max Motion 2 is such a good quality shoe I have ever seen. It is made in high-quality material and nothing I like from this shoe more than its being lightweight. I actually disagree with you on the issue of color,  when I bought this shoe it was actually the same as it was in the image. What I liked here is that you have a link to the Nike store, this assures reliability to the buyer. Thanks.


Thanks Mugalu. I’m glad to say I welcome your disagreement as it proves you are one of the people that don’t have any issue with the colour.

Happy new year to you, man.
