For the past five years, Nike have celebrated its annual Air Max Day with the ‘On Air’ design competition. Bringing in sneaker heads from around the world, the public were invited to reimagine the famous Air Max sneakers at design workshops in Paris, London, New York, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo. Selecting 18 finalists from each city, six young creatives were then chosen as the winners. With teasers released over the past six months, you can finally cop the designs.
Since the ideas were conceived in March, last year, the physical version will be available to customers from April 13 on the SNKRS app.
The ‘On Air’ winning collection comprises of the the fresh Air Max 97 “Shanghai Kaleidoscope” designed by Cash Ru; a colourful Air Max 97 “London Summer of Love” designed by Jasmine Lasode; the psychedelic Nike Air Max 1 “Tokyo Maze” designed by Yuta Takuman; a bright light-inspired Nike Air Max 97 “Neon Seoul” designed by Gwang Shin; the “La Mezcla”-inspired Air Max 98 NYC designed by Gabrielle Serrano; and finally the tonal Nike Air VaporMax Plus Paris designed by Lou Matheron.
Prices from $150 USD for the Air Max 1; $200 USD for the Air Max 97 and 98; and $240 USD for the VaporMax Plus. Check out the sneakers below, before marking your calendars for April 13.
