HBD, Air Max

Trend Alert

What happens when you ask an architect to design a sneaker?
You get something revolutionary. Tinker Hatfield joined Nike designing storefronts
and office spaces, eventually applying his architectural background to footwear,
most notably the Nike Air Max 1.

Today marks the 30th anniversary of this legendary shoe.
Inspired by the inside-out design of Paris Pompidou Center, the sneaker was the first
of its kind to feature a visible air bubble sole.

From running to basketball, Air Max quickly became the athletic shoe of choice,
eventually taking over the fashion scene as a coveted streetwear staple.
After 30 years, its evolution shows no signs of stopping.
