While sneakerheads patiently await the shoes Nike will drop for Air Max Day, which takes place every March 26, the brand has revealed what is slated to hit stores after and delivered styles you could wear on the day itself.
According to the Swoosh, six Air Max styles are slated to hit stores in April. The looks are the results of last year’s “Nike: On Air” design contest, where contestants reimagined Air Max styles using their city as inspiration. The shoes are inspired by New York City, London, Paris, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo.
New imagery of one of the six styles is circulating on social media, the Nike Air Max 97 “Neon Seoul” designed by Gwang Shin. The bold take on the classic silhouette is inspired by the city’s neon signs.
The other five styles to hit retail in April are the NYC-inspired Air Max 98 La Mezcla by Gabrielle Serrano, the Shanghai-themed Air Max 97 SH Kaleidoscope by Cash Ru, the Air Max 97 London Summer of Love by Jasmine Lasode, the Air Max 1 Tokyo Maze by Yuta Takuman and the Air VaporMax Plus Paris Works in Progress by Lou Matheron.
