Riccardo Tisci is behind the new Nike Air Max

Riccardo Tisci Designs New Nike Air Max 97

No longer the Givenchy designer in charge but still the same super talented designer, Riccardo Tisci continues to pursue creative chances, this time redesigning the Nike Air Max 97.

Riccardo Tisci just finished working on a 30th anniversary version of the Nike Air Max 97 which will launch as soon as the upcoming 23rd of March.

What is the updgrade given under his concept management? “I gave the shoe more height,” he declared to WWD. “I think it’s much more street. It’s a new kind of stance, one which I would want in my wardrobe.”

Tisci is not the first one to unveil a new style for the Nike Air, Marc Newson also gave it a change that combines the sockliner in the sneaker with a stylish velvet strap. Architect Arthur Huang also gave it a try, by using recycled materials, as an architect with a practical sense of design, he was able to create the lightest Air Maw 1 model in history.

Besides collaborating with the coveted designer, Nike is also making news this week for his plans to launch head coverings for Muslim women in sports, the “Pro Hijab”, name of the athletic garment, is set to be available next year.
