Editor’s Notes: In celebration of this year’s Air Max Day, Nike is set to release Sean Wotherspoon’s Vote Forward-winning design of the Air Max 1/97. Wotherspoon is also the face of consignment shop Round Two. which was originally established in Virginia, before moving to Los Angeles and then New York City.
A hybrid of the Air Max 1 and the Air Max 97, the sneaker channels Wotherspoon’s affinity for ’90s references, thus featuring a multicolored corduroy upper. Design details then include small Swoosh branding, corduroy pull tabs, interchangeable tongue patches, and four lace options. Read more about Wotherspoons main design inspirations here.
It appears that alongside the Air Max 1/97, Nike will be releasing a T-shirt with puffy prints and a multicolored corduroy hat.
Sean Wotherspoon’s Nike Air Max 1/97 is due out this Air Max Day, March 26, while the EU release is two days earlier on March 24.
