An idea sketched on paper 29 years ago – it was how Tinker would open the window of visible air to the world. It was an Air Max prequel and without that sketch and others the Nike Air Max 1 would not exist. The Air Max Zero was one of the first steps in a design process that would bring the world Max Air. The one before the 1.
We know of Tinker’s travels to Paris and his inspiration that came from the Pompidou centre. But many don’t know that there were several potential ideas that could’ve been Nike’s visible air shoe and one of those was the Air Max Zero. Now taken from sketch to shoe and dropping in the next couple of days for Air Max Day 2015.
Everything starts at ZERO.
