Introducing The New Nike Air Max Zero


Before the Air Max 1 there was... well, there were some sketches. 

Some 30 years ago, a yet-to-be-legendary Nike shoe designer by the name of Tinker Hatfield and developer Mark Parker were playing around with ideas for a trainer that incorporated Nike's Air technology. The heel-supported design would evolve to become the vastly successful Air Max 1, but the 'original' lines of Hatfield and Parker's first concept were left to collect dust in a Nike vault. Until now. 

With a bootie-inspired construction, sock upper and breathable lining, this layered trainer is the Air Max Zero, a shoe based on those first drawings of Hatfield.  


Made with a carved-out Phylon midsole unit sporting the titular Air bubble, the trainer carries hints of the Air Max 1 DNA, with nods to other Nike staples, like a Huarache heel strap and modern Flyknit woven fabrics. 

Now available on Nike's online store, a set of the Air Max Zero will set you back £140. Expect it to receive some reworked colourways in the coming months.
