Train for Your Sport With the Nike Air Max

As fall sports season heats up, no part of your body takes more of a pounding than your feet. When you skimp on your shoes, you can end up shortening your season with a whole host of injuries—like blisters, turf toe and shin splints. That's why it's important to choose a training shoe with a reputation for excellence, like the Nike Air Max.

Throughout the last 20 years, Air Max shoes have consistently received high marks for both comfort and durability. Commentators say the shoe's Max Air full-length cushion is soft—but not too soft—allowing athletes to work hard without putting excessive strain on their joints. Athletes also benefit from highly breathable mesh uppers, which keep their feet cool and dry during tough workouts.

The Air Max is designed to provide comfort and performance without sacrificing style. From a huge selection of styles and colors, and with the option to customize your shoes with NikeiD, you can find the right pair to show off your own bit of Nike flair.

Another great feature of the Nike Air Max is Nike+ compatibility. Nike+ works with all types of iPods to track running distance, speed and route. It can also be fully integrated with Twitter and Facebook, allowing you to share your progress and compete with friends. It might just be the motivation you need to put in the miles that will make a difference on the field.

To find a pair of shoes that will help take your training to the next level this fall, check out the full Nike Air Max+ 2011 line.
