Riccardo Tisci Revamps Nike’s Air Max in Honor of Air Max Day
To celebrate Air Max Day, NikeLab worked with three designers to revamp the classic Air Max silhouette, including former creative director for Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci. Tisci first worked with Nike in 2014, and his ongoing collaborations with the brand are some of the most coveted.
In his iteration of the classic Air Max silhouette, Tisci transformed the sneaker into a midcut silhouette in navy with a white midsole and gold accents. Tisci opened up about what the classic sneaker means to him, saying, “The shoes had a huge influence and a huge impact in Italian culture. For me the shoes are classic, but not classic in the boring way. Classic in the way like when you are looking up in Rome, seeing the architecture and the sculptures.”
You can cop Tisci's creation on Air Max Day, March 26, for $200 USD.
