Iconic sportswear brand Nike is known for continuously drawing inspiration from surrounding pop culture and social issues and the brand's latest take on the Air Max sneaker style do just that by referencing the climate. The shoes are dubbed Ocean Fog with an aesthetic inspired by the mist that accumulates above bodies of oceanic water when there is a temperature inversion.

Marine layer is the environmental effect of contrasting temperatures meeting over a body of water causing a fog to roll in. These Air Max sneakers have a pattern design inspired by this specific climate change with a sleek blue gray speckled colorway complemented with matching laces and elevated soles in the same dapper color hue.
