The highly anticipated Nike releases of the year
Nike are back with their famous ‘On Air‘ silhouettes. Calling the top Air Max fans from all over the Globe, the Swoosh brand asked the designers to create these silhouettes based on their city. Making references to places, topics and styles from the city, these designers were narrowed down to just 3 from each place, leaving the public to decide their winners last Summer.
After creating and crafting their final versions over the last few months, the silhouettes from Tokyo, London, New York, Seoul, Shanghai and Paris are going to be finally releasing on the 13th March via Nike’s SNKRS.
Take a look at the silhouettes below and be sure to stay locked to The Sole Womens for all your updates on these sneakers and to maximise your chance to cop these limited silhouettes!
Dubbed the “Tokyo Maze,” this Air Max 1 arrives in a black on white colourway with a labrynth pattern over the entire upper. Completed with multicoloured gradient laces, the title along with branding stitched into the tongue’s tag and a clean white Swoosh to the sidewalls.
Titled “London Summer Of Love”, this silhouette is set and created to make you feel happiness, with references to 97P and ‘Good Chat’ stitched into the heel tag, a classic one liner from England residents.
Known as “La Mezcla” which translates to “the mix”, this silhouette gives nods to the population of New York and all of the diverse races. The gradient skin tones are depicted on the upper, alongside the green, which of course signifies the Statue of Liberty.
The Kaleidoscope takes inspiration from the skyline in Shanghai, with cloud-like aesthetics, a dreamy styling takes over the 97 in a fluid way. Taking away from the chaos of the city and adding a whimsical feel to the shoe.
Addressed as the “Neon Seoul”, this silhouette takes cues from the neon lights in the city, a matte-black upper combined with with vivid neon waved take inspiration from the Taegeuk, from South Korea’s flag.
Finally, the “Paris Works in Progress” sneaker takes the VaporMax and the Air Max Plus, combining them with new features, representing a safety belt across the fore foot, combined with neon colours and screw-like detailing to signify construction signs, finished off with a hatched “do not cross” panel to the centre of the sneaker.
