BREATHABILITY AND SUPPORT FOR A PLUSH RIDE
The Nike Air Max Tailwind 6 Women's Running Shoe offers an excellent blend of cushioning and enhanced ventilation in a lightweight, supportive fit.

The engineered foam upper conforms to the shape of your foot, providing ventilation and support where you need it most. Ultra-thin mesh over the foam enhances breathability for lightweight comfort.
The redesigned Waffle outsole distributes your weight more evenly for a smoother ride. It also uses less rubber than traditional outsoles for flexibility, lightweight durability and great multi-surface traction.

Nike Air Max Origins
Nike's revolutionary Air-Sole unit made its way into Nike footwear in the late '70s. In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 debuted with visible air in its heel, allowing fans more than just the feel of Air-Sole comfort- suddenly they could see it. Since then, next-generation Nike Air Max shoes have become a hit with athletes and collectors by offering striking color combinations and reliable, lightweight cushioning.
Max AirPart of the Nike Air family, Max Air was designed to provide maximum impact protection during repetitive landings. Shoes with Max Air feature less midsole material and larger-volume airbags for lighter weight and maximum cushioning you can see.
