Wotherspoon, who is the owner of a vintage shop and an Air Max fan, was the winner of the RevolutionAir design competition, as part of which Air Max fans voted for sneaker designs from some of the boldest creators tasked to reimagine the future of Nike Air Max.

The winner would have the model put in mass production, with Sean Wotherspoon’s hybrid of the Nike Air Max 97 and the Nike Air Max 1 taking the first spot.

The creator’s inspiration came from his love of 1980s Nike hats, and features multicolor corduroy on the uppers edges, “VA to LA” branding, personalised tongue decals and velour on the toe and the heel. The midsole mimics Nike’s 1987’s Air Max 1.

The model was first released in limited quantities in Richmond, Virginia and Los Angeles, California, hence the “VA to LA” branding.

As of 21 November last year, the sneaker’s retail price stands at around £110.
