The upper, midsole, and outsole of a shoe are the may features that define it. The upper is the parts of a shoe that cover the back of the heel, the instep and the toes. Basically, the upper is attached to the sole of a shoe. The midsole is the middle layer of a sole. It’s the layer between the inner and outer sole of a shoe. Outsole is the bottom-most part of a shoe that makes direct contact with the ground and ensures surface gripping. It can be leather or rubber.
The upper is made from a stretchy and flexible material called stretch-knit fabric. You know how socks feel like when you wear them – they are so lightweight, stretchy and flexible. That’s what the upper feels like on your foot when you put the shoe on. It does not only offer comfortable, lightweight feel but also give a chance for some air to keep the shoe interior in a good condition.
Unlike the previous model, Air Max Sequent 3 has a synthetic overlay on the midfoot exterior. The purpose of the synthetic overlay is to ensure the foot is kept in place. The overlay has flywire cables attached to it. the flywire cables form two holes on each side. These stretchy wires enable wearers to customize the fit with the lace.
Another thing that is distinctive about the shoe is its partial booties construction which helps enable smooth feeling while wearing it. This construction prevents the heel, ankles, and instep from hot spots or skin irritation. You would also find a molded foam which acts as a counter in the heel section. The purpose of this is to keep the foot in place and avoiding indeliberate slip off.
Nike Air Max Sequent 3 features a U-shaped Nike Air Max unit in the heel. The purpose of the Max Air unit is to provide special cushioning, making you feel as if you’re working on air while standing on it. The Air Max unit is very responsive and function well for impact shock absorption.
Phylon is usually a very responsive, flexible shock absorbing material that is mostly used in sport shoes. The material runs the length of Nike Air Max Sequent 3. It gives wearers the feel of lightweight shoe.
The outsole of Air Max Sequent 3 still sticks to its root. It has the same outsole as its predecessors. The rubber outsole ensure good traction and durability. With the right thickness, it can protect the midsole foam from wear and tear.
Another distinctive feature is the flex grooves along the forefoot. They allow your foot to flex naturally. They also render the foot lightweight.
Air Max Origins
The Air Max technology was first featured in Nike footwear in the 70s. People could only feel the comfort of the air. Nike Air Max 1 was the first Air Max shoe to feature visible Air-Sole unit in the heel. When Air Max 1 was debuted with the visible air unit in 1987, it was something new for fans. The fans couldn’t only feel the comfort of the air, but they could also see it. in 1990 (three years later), the Air Max 90 was released featuring larger visible air window. Over the years, Nike has released Air Max shoes in different designs and variety of colourways. The shoes are popular among athletes, pop stars, sneakerheads, and so on. The Air Max shoes are still among the popular Nike shoes out there.
