In favor of keeping things interesting, Nike's latest Air Max design rewinds time to before the shoe was even created. Tinker Hatfield's masterpiece is rooted in a trip to Paris and a long lost sketch that was unearthed and brought to life to help celebrate the shoe's legacy of timeless innovation.

The story goes that the Nike Air Max was inspired by the Centre Pompidou's inside-out design and Tinker's desire to show the world just what made Nike's runners so comfortable. His original sketch was poured over to create this modern iteration complete with an Air Max Ulra outsole and an upper with a blend of fuse and mesh for durable breathability. In a very cool personal touch, the insoles bear Tinker's signature as well as 3/26, which is the date of Nike's annual Air Max Day celebration.

That last sentence should let you know when you'll be able to cop these but in case you're just joining us, look out for them on March 26. You'll be able to find them at Nike for $150 a pair.
