The Nike Air Max Zero Essential heritage 

In 1987, Tinker Hatfield put into paper his visual concept of the Air Max Zero. He had a lot of great concepts ready for the design of the shoe but the technology needed was still limited. Almost three decades later, the Nike Sportswear design team was tasked to reinterpret Hatfield's design for the second year of the Air Max Day celebration.
