Nike Reintroduces the Air Sunder Max


First introduced in 1999, the Nike Air Sunder Max was ahead of its time. The model was designed as a cross-training shoe, though its sleek and futuristic aesthetic makes it a perfect candidate for a relaunch in today’s sneaker landscape.

Nike will be reintroducing the Air Sunder Max to for its 25th anniversary, rebranded as the Air Max SNDR. The model features a spandex shroud upper with zipper over the laces, revealing the numbers “6453” when zipped down. This is a nod to the last 4 digits of Nike’s office numbers around the world, which spell out N-I-K-E on the keypad. Additional features include thermoplastic rubber mudguards on the side panels, a phylon midsole with an Air Max bubble on the heel and smaller Nike Air bubbles in the forefoot, and a unique circuit board-like traction pattern on the outsole.

The Air Sunder Max has remained stashed away in the archive since the early ’00s, though it recently made an appearance as the COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS x Nike collab of Spring/Summer 2022. The relaunch in 2024 kicks off with the return of the OG 1999 “Canyon Gold” colorway and will be followed by two equally bright color options: Highlighter Green and Highlighter Pink.

Other future colorways include a “Triple Black” (expected to drop in September), two colorways in collaboration with Kids of Immigrants for Holiday 2024, and GORE-TEX iterations dropping Spring 2025.

The Nike Air Max SNDR drops in its OG “Canyon Gold” colorway on July 11th, releasing via SNKRS and select retailers. The “Highlighter Green” and “Highlighter Pink” colorways will follow on August 8th. Check out these three launch colorways below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for more updates.
