In the annals of sneaker design, none holds more reverence, with the exception of Air Jordan, as the Nike Air Max 1. Unlike most of its precursors at the time, the Air Max 1 was the few designed from scratch. In addition, it was done not by a “designer” with extensive experience, but by Tinker Hatfield, an architect. Partly influenced by High-Tech Architecture, a school of style where all the essential building components are exposed, like the Centre Georges Pompidou of Paris. Hatfield applied the same theme to the Air Max 1 via a cutaway of the midsole, leaving the Air Sole unit exposed. That bold gesture has since then sprung an entire brand as well as a following.
In addition to the countless Air Max’s and alike product, Nike just introduce a new colorway to the venerable Air Max 1, in White/Netural Grey-Vibrant Yellow. Now available at Berlin’s Overkill boutique.
