Think you can outdo Sean Wotherspoon’s 1/97 design? The Nike ‘ON AIR’ Design Workshop returns to give aspiring sneaker designers a chance to whip up their own Air Max to be put before a panel of judges. Lucky Londoners will have opportunity to impress the likes of grime legend Skepta, as well as Nike’s senior design director, Nate Jobe, vice president creative director of colour design, Courtney Dailey, and ALCH creative director, Alexandra Hackett.
With proceedings kicking off in New York City last week, other scheduled locations to follow include London, Paris, Seoul, Shanghai, and Tokyo. Workshop participants choose one of 10 Air Max silhouettes to customise with the help of Nike designers and special guest mentors. The options include Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Air Max 180, Air Max BW, Air Max 93, Air Max 95, Air Max 97, Air Max 98, Air Max 270, and the Air VaporMax Plus.
