A closer look at how Tinker designed the iconic sneaker

Of all the sneakers Tinker Hatfield designed for Nike, the Air Max 1 remains to be one of his best works. More than 30 years since the Air Max 1 made a statement in sneaker culture, we remain curious as to how Tinker designed the iconic sneaker. That being said, Nike will be releasing the “Sketch To Shelf” and “Schematic” Air Max 1. The two models come with scribbles and notes paying reference to Tinker’s original sketches, giving us sneakerheads a peek at how he designed the Air Max 1 to the iconic status it is today.

Both pairs are slated to drop on July 13, though there’s no word yet if they will be available locally.
