Nike Celebrates 30 years of Airmax throughout the month of March. Nike Middle East has invited creatives from the region, dubbed “Revolutionairs” to design artwork, highlighting the heritage of Air. The iconic Airmax continues to be part of the growing sneaker epidemic and art culture within the region. The commissioned artists are Rami Afifi, Rollan Rodriguez and Dina Saadi.

Rollan Rodriquez jumped at the opportunity to design the box of the Air Max1 OG, as he wanted to tell his story through his work. His design was inspired by the heritage of the shoe and his memory of the first Airmax received as a child. Rollan drew parallels between his old artistic style and the history of the shoe, while integrating new modern techniques to emphasize the fresh relevance of it till today.

Airmax is the epitome of design

Dina Saadi pushes boundaries with everything she does. She is a fan of Japanese culture and nature, so designing the box for the Air Max Atmos was a perfect fit for her style. Her work resulted in an art highlighting the Japanese heritage behind the sneaker.

Airmax speaks to my personality, it’s about stepping out of your comfort zone, and it’s that statement about following your dreams
