If you were one of the many sneakerheads to vote in the Air Max 1 ‘Atmos Elephant’ you’ve got a lot to be excited about this weekend. While there’s no guarantee of a cop the return of this classic wouldn’t be possible without your contribution.
Continuing those democratic vibes, Nike once again puts all control into the hands of their loyal fan base. But instead of allowing consumers the right to vote back an ‘OG’ style, this is an opportunity to pick a never-before-seen silhouette. Choose from one of the twelve designs below and have your say in the future of air. Through this ‘Vote Forward’ experience, the winning design will go into production next year, releasing just in time for Air Max Day, 2018.
The 12 designers behind each concept are known as the Nike RevolutionAirs. Each mock-up is a hybrid of two iconic sneaks. The Air Max 97 and Vapourmax mash-up is especially interesting.
Voting is set to go live today and you’ll have until March 25th to cast your decision. Winners are announced on March 26th – Air Max Day!
Learn more about each designer here and don’t forget to place your vote!
