How to Cop the Air Max 1/97 Sean Wotherspoon on Air Max Day

March 7, 2018

In 2017, Nike held a competition in which they chose 12 RevolutionAIRS to design their own Air Max. Gaining the most votes in Nike’s Vote Forward, the design of store owner, Sean Wotherspoon, was chosen to be the new Air Max. His contest-winning hybrid, the Air Max 1/97 Sean Wotherspoon releases on Air Max Day 2018 alongside the OFF-WHITE x Air Vapormax.


Features on the Air Max 1/97 Sean Wotherspoon

As the word “hybrid” suggests, the Air Max 1/97 Sean Wotherspoon has a mix of features from both the Air Max 1 and Air Max 97. You can’t miss the recognizable Air Max 97 upper. Just below, comes an Air Max 1 sole with a red air unit.

The pattern of colorful corduroy stitched together will look great once they start to fray. The wear gives the shoe more character. That also means the shoe will last a long time in your collection.

The corduroy upper was inspired by the Nike hats from the 80’s. Another 80’s inspired feature is the velvety material on the inside of the shoe, on the sock-liner and inside of the tongue. When you buy the shoes, you get four sets of different colored laces. You also get playful velcro patches and a corduroy bust bag with the shoe.

Today, my size of the Nike Air Max 1/97 Sean Wotherspoon costs $1,000 on StockX, what about yours?
