Back in May 2018, 18 finalists were announced for Nike's On Air competition and six winners were chosen through voting. Now, the final designs for each winner have been revealed. Each winner represents their hometown and each sneaker is a reflection of those cities: New York City, London, Tokyo, Paris, Shanghai and Seoul.
Gabrielle Serrano designed the Air Max 98 La Mezcla to represent the diversity of NYC. The Air Max 97 Neon Seoul designed by Gwang Shin is inspired by the South Korean capital and its abundance of neon signage. Jasmine Lasode took the memory of her first date for the Air Max 97 London Summer of Love. Tokyo's transportation system and iconic Tower are presented by Yuta Takuman on the Air Max 1 Tokyo Maze. A construction site inspired Lou Matheron on the Air VaporMax Plus Paris Works in Progress. Finally, Shanghai's skies helped Cash Ru bring to life the Air Max 97 SH Kaleidoscope.
All of the Nike: On Air designs will start releasing in April. Stay tuned for price points and exact dates. For now, celebrate Black History Month with Nike's BHM collection, releasing tomorrow.
