It's officially Air Max Day on March 26, and in anticipation, Complex UK has highlighted the Nike sneaks' strongest moments in British musicmoments that wouldn't have been anywhere near as real without the right Air Max model. For nearly three decades now, the running technology in these stylish models has been a cling-to factor for party-goers all over, often held up as being the most comfortable crep to cut a step in. From happy hardcore and jungle to deep house and Grime 2.0, we dig deep to uncover the rich history of the Air Max trainer in our influential music scenes and the many subcultures that have sprung from them. This is Air Max Moments In UK Music.
