Nike Air Max Zero QS – Launching 26th March

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015


In terms of the evolutionary landscape of the iconic Nike Air Max series, this latest silhouette can only be described as the ‘one before the One’.

Considered to be too contemporary, too avant garde and too innovative for the market, the Air Max Zero was designer Tinker Hatfield’s first foray into the world of visible Air. Taking inspiration from Renzo Piano’s Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, a building famed for its exposed workings and industrial aesthetic, the Zero’s forward thinking make-up lead to Hatfield refining the design completely, eventually developing into the far more palatable Air Max 1 two years later.

Now on the design’s 30th anniversary, Nike have decided 2015 is the right time to release the fabled Zero for their Air Max Day celebrations. Taking style cues from two other Hatfield designs, the Air Huarache and the Sock Racer, the Air Max Zero has been updated with innovative of-the-minute Nike technology.

The strongly branded runner features Hyperfuse overlays overlaying a monofilament yarn mesh panel for robust, lightweight construction whilst the sole unit has been taking from the Air Max 1 Ultra Moire. Finishing the Zero off nicely is all new AM branding to the tongue and inner and an outersole cut to reveal even more visible air whilst 3M elements to the side panel swoosh, tongue and sock liner add a purely functional element to this inspired sneaker.

Release Information
Name: Nike Air Max Zero QS
Colour: White/Mid Navy/Rift Blue/Hyper Jade
Style Code: 789695-104
Launch Date: 26th March 2015

Friday, March 13th, 2015


In the lead up to the second annual Air Max Day, Nike have unveiled this illustrated chronicle of the evolution of the Air Max.

Making its debut on the Nike Tailwind in 1978, runners and athletes from around the world were familiar with the benefits of Nike Air’s cushioning technology a full decade before the advent of visible air.

Although most may credit famed designer Tinker Hatfield for Air technology inevitable success, it was only when Nike’s Director of Cushioning Innovation, David Forland joined the team in 1985 that the advantages and potentially ground-breaking benefits became of the cushioning system became clear.
