If Airlines Had Trainers

If Airlines Had Trainers

If Airlines Had Trainers
31 March 2014

On a long-haul flight these days, you might get a thin, branded blanket, maybe poor quality headphones and a face mask which is about 1% useful at helping you get to sleep. However, it seems that they should ditch all of these and give you some cool trainers instead.

Airline-themed trainers are the idea of London-based art director Marco Lemcke, who works at the creative agency Joint. He told PSFK that his team “stumbled upon the word-play of ‘Nike Air’ and ‘airline’, and decided that “it seemed obvious to try out how a collaboration would look”.

Thus he designed these seven brilliant Nike trainers, as inspired by the colour themes and branding of different airlines. Our favourites are probably KLM and Easyjet (for the bolder man), but they all work nicely.

We're just ever-so-slightly disappointed he didn't design a KLM-themed clog.
