Simeon Georgiev is back with an exclusive set of renderings for Highsnobiety. While in the past we focused on the Air Max 1 and Roshe Run, this time around we’ve reimagined what Nike’s Air Max 90, Air Force 1 Low and Air Huarache might look like a hundred years from now. Just like his last project, the concept is to imagine what we’d like our robot servants to wear as they assist us through our daily lives. Thus, each pair is seamlessly integrated with each droid, showcasing each silhouette’s sleek redesign.

The Air Max 90 flows beautifully from toe box to heel, foregoing the traditional lace guard for a hydraulic clasping system. The Air Force 1 Low, meanwhile, takes the sneaker’s boxy shape and exaggerates it, shrouding half of the Swoosh in reinforced housing for a solid geometric shape throughout. Metal “laces” are used as detailing without any functional purpose, while metal studs on the toe box add an edge of punk. Lastly, the Air Huarache retains its familiar heel cage and instead plays up the wavy reinforcements along the toe box, outsole and lace guard, offering a bulkier silhouette overall.

Enjoy our latest concepts above and see more from Georgiev.
