It’s been one year since the long-awaited winner of 2017s Nike “RevolutionAir” design competition, Sean Wotherspoon’s highly anticipated Nike Air Max 97/1 hybrid, first made its way into the collective consciousness. And on March 26, 2018—also known as Air Max Day, the date of the release of the AM1 back in 1987—the highly coveted silhouette is finally available via the Nike SNKRS Draw app.

So what makes this shoe special? Well it’s covered with details that reference both the history of the Air Max and Wotherspoon's own personal history. First, and most noticeable, is the silhouette itself, which uses the upper of an Air Max 97 but the sole unit of an Air Max 1. Then there's the upper—a riot of pastel corduroy that makes for a very distinctive look. And you can't forget the velcro tongue tab, which comes with interchangeable wave and swoosh logo patches to mix and match. Or the "VA to LA" branding on the heel tab that calls out Wotherspoon's two homes of Richmond, Virginia, and Los Angeles, California. 

All in all, it's a standout pair. If you want to get your hands on it, move fast. But in the meantime, here's a closer look.
