18. Nike Air Max 93 (Air Max 270)
These 93’s were originally known as the Air Max 270 because of the impressive 270-degree air unit. That degree range means that you’re going to get more air and greater protection. While we’re focused on the air unit, these were first Air Max’s with a colored air unit.
Another cool thing about these is that the shoe was manufactured through a new process called “blow-molding”. The process injects gas through an external tube so that the plastic can be formed into a mold. Nike, as always, was seeking new frontiers with their shoes.
