Tinker Hatfield is no stranger to creating cool sneakers. From the Air Jordan 3 to the Air Max 1 to the Air Jordan XX9, Tinker has had his hand is nearly every cool Nike shoe you can think of. This weekend, Hatfield's work once again came to life via the new Nike Air Max Zero.
The Air Max Zero was actually designed in 1985 -- before the Air Max 1. Hatfield's original drawing, which was ahead of its time in terms of what technically possible, was recently discovered in the archives at Nike. A team from Nike Sportswear led by Graeme McMillian was tasked with creating the shoe and bringing it up to today's standards.
Introduced as part of Nike's Air Max Day to celebrate that line, the shoe was unveiled in a special house-sized sneaker box in Los Angeles.
Erected in a week and glowing through the night, the Air Max Box featured memorable silhouettes from the line including favorites such as the Air Max 95, the Air Max 2015, the Air Max 1 and the Air Max.
Check out the video above for more details about the shoe and the pop-up sneaker-box venue that was on Third Street in Los Angeles.
