The new Air Max2 CB
shoe’s dual air pressure technology matches the movement and impact of the foot in basketball.
Charles Barkley, basketball player, wears the Air Max2 CB basketball shoe from Nike.
When running, the heel strikes first, so the 5 psi (at inflation), lower density air is placed in the center of the heel Air-Sole unit. This “softer” air provides maximum protection after jumps. Higher density, 25 psi (at inflation) air wraps around the heel, creating firmness and stability for landing and lateral moves.
The “air” used is actually a gas that won’t deflate over the
lifetime of the shoe.
A forefoot Air-Sole unit provides extra cushioning.
