Nike Pays Homage to the In­spi­ra­tion Be­hind the Air Max 1 De­sign

Shoes & Accessories - - The Month That Was -

Thanks to his countless amounts of rev­o­lu­tion­ary de­signs, Nike‘s leg­endary footwear de­signer Tin­ker Hat­field will con­tinue to make a last­ing im­pres­sion on the sneaker world. Of his many works, the vis­i­ble Air bub­ble is still one of his most im­por­tant de­sign el­e­ments, which Nike will honor with this up­com­ing “Cen­tre Pom­pi­dou” Air Max 1 Pack.

In­spired by Hat­field’s visit to the Cen­tre Pom­pi­dou in Paris, the struc­ture’s see-through tub­ing ex­te­rior led to what we know to­day as the vis­i­ble air unit for the Air Max 1. Drop­ping in two col­or­ways, the model will come in plat­inum/royal blue/white and in wolf gray/black/cool gray. Both pairs are equipped with a translu­cent out­sole that dis­plays a “P” logo with mul­ti­col­ored ac­cents that sym­bol­ize the Parisian de­sign.

Re­leas­ing in a lim­ited fash­ion, the Nike Air Max 1 “Cen­tre Pom­pi­dou” is set to drop on Sept. 19 for a re­tail price of $169, with lo­ca­tions like End Cloth­ing re­leas­ing the pairs via raf­fle.

Tin­ker Hat­field de­signed most of the orig­i­nal Jor­dan Brand mod­els, which be­gan with the Air Jor­dan 3 and con­tin­ued up to the Air Jor­dan 15.
