As one of the world’s foremost collectors of vintage shoes and apparel, Sean Wotherspoon created the Air Max 1/97 SW for 2017’s Vote Forward competition—and won.
The voter-approved design channels his passion for ’80s culture while drawing influence from vintage corduroy caps, his native Virginia and LA, and his two favourite sneakers: the Air Max 1 and the Air Max 97.
Released as part of Nike’s annual Air Max Day celebrations, the distinctive hybrid runner features a mesmerising arrange of corduroy panels utilising the upper design of the iconic Air Max 97 sat atop the simple visible Air tooling of the Air max 1.
Finished with small swoosh branding to the lateral side panel and toebox, corduroy heel tabs, interchangeable velcro patches to the tongue, ‘smiley face’ decal to the insole, and four lace options, the Air Max 1/97 VF SW is an all new icon.
