Air Max Remixed, Recreated, Re-tooled and Re-imagined

The legacy of Air may be sustained by Nike’s robust internal collaboration, but its vibrancy is supported by cross-pollinating ideas with a variety of global talents. In sneaker terms, this equates to the “x” in Nike’s creative partnerships. The resulting products have yielded radical reconsiderations, far-out articulations and some of the most sought-after visions of Air ever.
 
The latest of these come from a quartet of intriguing and ambitious Air Max designs from Tokyo-based Atmos, Edison Chen's venerable CLOT, New York's Heron Preston and the elusive Cactus Plant Flea Market. Each offers a distinct take on an Air Max classic with a different starting point — remixed, recreated, re-tooled and re-imagined, respectively.
