The Nike Air Max Craze is Rumored to Return in 2025

Nike’s archives are filled with thousands of unique silhouettes from their fifty year history, some of which are absolutely wild in their construction. Next year, one of these models, the Air Max Craze, is expected to appear in its first ever retro release.

In 2000, Nike introduced the Alpha Project, a series of incredibly unique new silhouettes that pushed the boundaries of performance footwear at the time. The most famous silhouette from the project is likely the Air Presto, known for its adaptable uppers and tee shirt sizing range. The Alpha series also contains a few wild gems, like the Air Max Craze, a model that blends visible Air tech with a Huarache-like upper and minimal heels. This week, news of the shoe’s return broke, though they are not expected to arrive until sometime in 2025. The silhouette features a patterned upper with grids, wavy lines, and colorful accents, but perhaps the most notable piece is the absence of a true heel construction. Instead, there is a single heel counter pad held in place by two rubberized support pieces that attach to the midsole.


Nike’s next retro from their Air Max line, the Craze, has not been officially announced for release yet, and has not been seen in any new colors, but is expected to return sometime in 2025. Celebrating the wild shoe’s twenty-fifth anniversary, the Alpha Project model will likely be a quickstrike release, available through the SNKRS app and select retailers. Check out the images of a pair from 2000 below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more sneaker release news. In other releases, the “Bred” Air Jordan 11 returns this holiday season.
