About 30 years ago Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman started the sports brand Nike. Almost a year later the first Air Max dropped, better known as the Nike Air Max 1 OG. The first Air Max Nike sneaker with air cushion technology was born, and things went really fast after that. Many types of Air Maxes followed, with the latest one known as the Air Max 270. It looks like Nike is unstoppable with over 70 types of Air Maxes designed and made in the past 30 years.
