Remember when Sean Wotherspoon’s design hit the market? Well in 2018 Nike held it’s “On Air” contest where thousands of participants had the opportunity to dream up their own shoe design inspired by their communities; New York City, London, Paris, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo. The 18 finalists were then narrowed down to six winners (one from each city) and they began to work on their designs with Nike designers and developers. Now, we get a real look at those creations.

"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.”
