Nike Air Max 1
Nike Air Max 87 (the year of her creation) more commonly known as Nike Air Max 1 (for her role as eldest in the Air Max family) is today one of the most classic and most worship Running shoe from Nike. However, at its inception it was one of the most controversial pairs. This shoe is the work of designer/architect Tinker Hatfield .
The Air Max is the first shoe that “get naked” ! Indeed, Tinker Hatfield wants to allow consumers to understand the name and the technology behind the Nike Air shoes. He therefore decided to highlight the bubble by leaving it visible. For the record, this inspiration comes directly from a trip to Paris, France and a visit to the George Pompidou building where all the architectural elements are visible. The success will only reinforce Nike to have left Tinker in charge …
