The Nike Air Max 1

The Nike Air Max 1 was the inaugural Air Max model that was designed by Nike legend Tinker Hatfield. The story goes that Tinker's background as an architect meant he often referred to building design when seeking inspiration and this took his attention to the world famous Pompidou centre in Paris.

The interesting element of the Pompidou centre is its exoskeleton construction with the utility ducting and framework on the outside of the building and this was the direct inspiration for the visible air synonymous with the Nike Air Max One. This is how the Air Max 1 was born and why Nike use transparent air units in all their Air Max Trainers.
