For their next Nike Air Max women’s collection, the Swoosh takes us on a whirlwind around-the-world tour, paying homage to the art, design, and culture of five of the world’s biggest cities. Beginning with the art nouveau and rich design history of Paris with the Air Max 1 Ultra, Nike then makes a stop in London with an Air Max BW Ultra look inspired by the city’s Victorian patterns. New York City and the Air Max Thea Ultra is next up, with a black and white design borrowed from Art Deco design and the iconic Chrysler Building. The final stops take us to Asia, with a Tokyo Air Max Zero Ultra model inspired by Japanese wave patterns in pink before ending with an ode to ancient Chinese architecture in Shanghai on the Air Max 90 Ultra.
Releases begin March 16 with the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra “City Collection” Paris on March 16 via Nike.com with the remaining four releasing on each of the following days.
