Nike hosted the “On Air” contest last May which saw sneakerheads vote on some of their favorite Air Max designs from 19 international finalists. Eventually, six winners were chosen and Nike has slowly been revealing what their designs look like. Included in the pack are three pairs of the Air Max 97, one Air Max 98, an Air Max 1, and the Vapormax Plus. Each design is based on the city the designer is from. It’s a great initiative that has produced some incredible looking sneakers.
While official images were shown off yesterday, Nike has taken full advantage of Air Max day by revealing the official release date for the pack. Coming via Nike SNKRS in incredibly limited quantities, the “On Air” collection will be released on April 13th with prices varying per model. For example, the Air Max 1 will cost $150, the Air Max 97 and 98 will cost $200 and the Vapormax Plus will $240. This news comes courtesy of Sneaker News.
