The Nike: On Air sneaker design program was a call to arms for six major cities around the world to imagine an Air Max inspired by its community’s unique cultural fingerprint, as designed by the locals who know it best.
Out of thousands of entries from the workshop series, a judging panel that included Nike designers and city ambassadors selected 18 finalists (three from each city). Only six will see their vision undergo the ultimate transformation from a 3D rendering into a real-life shoe. That’s where you come in.
Beginning at 7:00 a.m. PST on May 8, registered Nike members can vote for their favorite designs from each city: Paris, London, New York, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo. You’ll have six days to decide, and you’re eligible to vote once per day. Voting officially ends on May 13 at 11:59 p.m. PST. You may vote either through nike.com/onair or through the SNKRS app.
Each city’s winning design will be announced on May 14 and will later enter production.
