The Nike Air Max Zero silhouette is a never before seen Air Max 1 pre-concept design. The bootie inspired construction and sock-like upper are nods to Tinker Hatfield’s vision, while a visible Max Air unit in the heel delivers lightweight cushioning that the Air Max is known for. The textile upper provides ultimate breathability, while also having a tongue-less design. These are currently available at both rime locations.
Nike Sportswear created the Air Max Zero from a Tinker Hatfield sketch from the early days of the Air Max, to celebrate Air Max Day. The monochromatic sneaker is made with modern amenities to update the original sketch. The minimalist color palette highlights the simplicity of the design with an all black mesh and fuse upper contrasted by a smooth white midsole unit, and rounding out the overall look of the sneaker is Tinker Hatfield’s signature on the tongue. They are currently available at rime’s Upper East Side Location.
