Admittedly, Air Max Day isn’t exactly a Federal holiday, but for anyone interested in sneakers, the day marking Nike’s industry changing Air cushioning system is self evidently significant.
Last year’s Air Max Day saw the release, for the first time, of the Air Max Zero, designer Tinker Hatfield’s conceptual, visible air prototype. For 2016, the white and yellow colorway in the original design sketch will see the light of day.
The original Air Max Zero is definitely a slice of history, but don’t think for a second that Nike stopped there and called it a day. The Air Max Zero has been updated with current Nike innovations such as the lighter phylon outsole of the Air Max 1 Ultra, seamless uppers that provide support without adding extra weight, and a lighter, breathable yarn mesh. These features don’t just add a contemporary edge to a historical design, they help to fully realize Tinker Hatfield’s original, groundbreaking vision.
