The vision for reimagining a classic shoe can come from anywhere, whether it be animal prints or nostalgic logos. For the latest atmos x Nike collaboration, titled “We Love Nike,” inspiration comes from dedicated sneakerheads and classic Nike Air Max colorways. atmos' Creative Director, Hirofumi Kojima, started by creating new graphics of “stacked” Nike shoe boxes, reminiscent of the ones in many collectors’ closets. Nike designers applied those graphics to the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, and two OG-inspired Air Max 95s. In terms of material and shape, Kojima was also influenced by the all-leather execution of the 1998 Air Max 1 SC and the bodily design of the Air Max 95.
