The Nike Breathe collection is a line of summer-focused high-performance shoes. It is after all summertime in the Southern half of the world, meaning that athletes south of the equator have a pressing need for highly breathable, lightweight sneakers that are comfortable in the oppressive heat.
The Nike Breathe Collection takes two legendary Nike silhouettes -- the Nike Air Max and Nike Roshe Run -- and transforms them into highly breathable and ultra-lightweight heat-beating shoes. The shoes were transformed by having heavy materials removed, with spacer mesh used to create layers of air between the upper materials, allowing for improved air circulation.
The Nike Breathe Collection is available for purchase on Nike's official website and at select Nike retailers.
