Last May, Nike announced the six winners of its 2018 On Air contest. After unveiling the final designs in January, Nike has now announced that all six sneakers will drop on April 13 through its Nike SNKRS (SNEAKRS in Europe) app and online launch page.

All six designs have had official product imagery uploaded to Nike's website, giving us a better look at the details. Pricing details have also been revealed. The Shanghai Air Max 97, London Air Max 97, Seoul Air Max 97, and NYC Air Max 98 will all retail for $200. The Tokyo-themed Air Max 1 will cost $150 and the Paris Air VaporMax Plus is $240.

The On Air program saw thousands of designers in New York City, London, Paris, Seoul, Shanghai, and Tokyo submit footwear concepts inspired by their community.

"There are attributes in the shoes this year that I would have never even considered, like introducing tools to encourage consumer modularity or pushing the boundaries of material usage," says Dylan Raasch, senior creative director of Nike Air Max. "These concepts prove that there are always new ways to approach design.”
