What's up with the toebox bs? I didn't own the air max as a kid due to lack of funds (I had generic converse..Instead of the converse logo it was an indians head) but I remember kids having air max and the toebox was more slender. That's what made them look cool to me. Is nike making them like this now purposely? Or is it another case of bad QC?
I don't think this toe box issue is just a bad case of QC. The more recent am 1's have been having the rounded and bulkier toe boxes with some exception. It seems that Nike is using the old shape on am's made from new materials (hyperfuse, tape). It's probably because they want to attract older air max collectors to the new generation am's. Also, I've read somewhere here in the thread that where they're made makes a difference on how they like look shape wise.
