Spotlight Sneaker van Nick: Nike Air Max 1 “Chinatown New York”

In the Spotlight
The Air Max 1 "Chinatown New York", with its colorful design, reflects the energy of bustling Chinatown. It is designed to celebrate the "Lunar New Year", the start of a new calendar year. The upper of the Air Max 1 is made up of black suede panels, which provide a nice contrast with the bright colors. The shoe has many cool details, such as the swoosh made of transparent material, Chinese characters on the tongue and a yellow / pink mini woosh. The sole is multicolored and is somewhat reminiscent of the outsole of the Nike Air Max Patta x Parra Cherrywood. The most striking detail is the gold embroidered Chollima character on the heel, a reference to a prominent winged horse from Chinese Mythology.

Spotlight Sneaker: Nike Air Max Animal 2.0 DLX

In the Spotlight
In this short column we want to put a sneaker in THE SPOTLIGHT every week, this time: The Nike Air max 1 Animal 2.0 is inspired by the previously released Nike air max Animal 1.0 (2006) Hirofumi Kojima the creative director of Atmos got his inspiration in a safari park, where he watched the most impressive animals. He believed that the design should radiate the strength of the tiger and the giraffe and the speed of a zebra, leopard and a horse. However, he made it even more complete by opting for a red swoosh (carnivores) and the green (herbivores) Nike branding on the heel. He designs shoes with the idea that they are wearable art, and this Animal 2.0 certainly succeeded in my opinion. De Nike Air Max 1 Animal 2.0  Release Date: 17-03-2018Retail...
