Now a global super brand, Nike started from humble beginnings in 1950s America. A college track coach named Bill Bowerman, and an athlete named Phil Knight, combined their skills and knowledge to bring innovation to the world of running shoes.
One of these innovations was inspired by Bill Bowerman’s waffle iron. Bowerman realised that by creating gridded grip on the soles of their shoes, the shoe would have greater traction yet still propel the runner forward.
From the start, Nike recognised the significant correlation between equipment and performance. They carry this guiding principle through all of their products, whether that’s the football kit for the Brazilian national team, golfing gear for Tiger Woods or your running shoes.
The brand continues to seek new and innovative ways to develop superior athletic products; this can be seen in the technology worked into improving your running experience with Nike+ products.

Nike Air Max Thea Shoes
An Air Max for the Ladies
Nike developed air cushioning technology back in the late ’70s. Nike air cushioning didn’t hit its stride until the drop of the Nike Air Max in 1987. Once consumers could see the effect that air cushioning was having in their every step, the sneaker game was changed forever. Ever since, new versions of the Air Max and its technology have been pouring into sneaker culture. It didn’t take long for Nike to expand into women’s sneaker culture with the introduction of new colorways, and ultimately, the Nike Air Max Thea. This sneaker quickly rose to become one of the most successful and long-lasting Air Max sneakers in the women’s market. In fact, although the Thea was made exclusively in women’s sizes, some men tried to squeeze their feet into the shoe due to its sleek, minimalistic design.

Nike Air Max Thea has an elegantly placed swoosh on the heel support back resting above a lightweight Phylon sole that’s ready to hit the pavement. Rubber strategically placed on the toe and heel provide lightweight traction and durability. You can find the Nike Air Max Thea at Foot Locker.
