The venue itself was pretty impressive, an old factory lit up with lazers, smoke and the Supercolor logo. Once inside we were greeted with a huge tree full of Supercolor Superstars, a wheel of all the colours and interactive displays all over.

Outside was an impressive terrace and the smells of jerk chicken and burgers immediately caught our attention. The decking looked out to the reservoir and an impressive sound stage floating in the water.

There was much speculation about the performer and of course Pharrell’s name was mentioned a few times but unfortunately the mega star was a bit too busy to attend this time. However we did have the atmospheric sounds of Koreless take to the decks, accompanied by a terrific light show across the water in time with the music.

The stores filled with eager customers who unsurprisingly found it difficult to pick a colour out of the 50 and we quick to make a GIF with their favourite colours.

The event was held in Wapping Power Station which proved to be an amazing host. In amongst old machinery were Nike installations documenting the AIr Max timeline, starting with the Air Max 1 and ending with the prequel shoe, the Air Max Zero. There was also a presentation room where the best of our very own OFFSPRING HQ Air Max were on display and competing against other sneaker stores, such as Size?, Foot Patrol and Sneakers ‘n’ Stuff.

The biggest spectacle of the event was the incredible 360 degree camera, which captured the guests in their Air Max and creating some stand-out poses. If we are honest we could of played in there all night and it was by far the talk of the event.

Air Max Zero: Timeline of Air Max History

The One before the 1, the Nike Air Max Zero has been revealed just in time for Air Max Day on the 26th March 2015.

The story behind this much coveted Air Max Zero came about when Nike Design Director Graeme McMillan came upon an old sketch by legendary designer Tinker Hatfield that pre-dated Hatfield’s iconic Air Max 1 model. According to Hatfield, the sketch was literally ahead of its time: “Not just in regards to its appearance, but also in terms of the construction it required,”.

The key detail of this unrealized trainer is the visible Air Unit that sits on the heel, for the upper Tinker used the Sock Racer technology and added support with an external strap that wraps around the heel. That design function would later come to power in the Air Huarache in 1991. However at the time, the Nike thought the sketch to be too advanced, so Tinker was forced to reinterpret the inside-out concept that was inspired by the Centre Pompidou in Paris, France, and the result was the Air Max 1.

The Air Max Timeline

Air Max 1

air max 1

The first of its kind, the Air Max 1 was originally released in this OG colourway in 1987 and some speculate that it should be called the Air Max 87 to mark the year of birth. It was the first trainer to display the Air Cushioning through a small window in the sole and marked the beginning of an iconic technology that we still love to this day.

Air Max 90

The evolution on the Air Max 1 saw the arrival of the larger than life Air Max 90, initially reffered to as the Air Max III until 2000. Originally released in the “Infrared” colourway, a colourway that is still favoured by many, the 90 had an exaggerated mid sole and thermoplastic strap technology.

Air Max 93

The most noticable feature of the Air Max 93 was the 270 degree exposed Air Sole unit, revealing more than it ever had. The sole unit contained more air and therefore greater protection and comfort. It was also the first model to have a coloured sole Air Sole unit and the upper featured a sock like fit, similar to the Air Huarache, released in 1991.

Air Max 95

Nike designer Sergio Lozano drew inspiration from the human body for the Air Max 95, with the midsole representing the spine, the panels being the muscle fibres, the loopholes the ribs and the mesh is the skin. The Air Max 95 featured minimal branding with just a small Swoosh to the side heel and added more visible Air Sole units to the toe and heel.

Air Max 97

A model that looked like it was designed by NASA, the Air Max 97 was in fact inspired by the high speed Japanese Bullet Train. The sleek design and metallic silver colourway combined with the 3M reflective panels on the upper provided a space like appearance and the shoe feattured a fully visible Air Sole unit.

Air Max 180

An undderated classic, the Air Max 180 contained 50% more air than previous models and the Air Sole unit was now visible through a protected outsole underneath the trainer.

Air Max 2003

air max 03

A stripped down and minimalist style, the Air Max 2003 featured a perforated, slick upper for breath-ability and a fully visible Air Sole unit.

Air Max 360

Released in 2006, the Air Max 360 offered athletes the smoothest and most durable ride ever created, thanks to an Air component that is visible from every angle. The Air Max 360 shoe allows an even greater focus on providing the ultimate comfort and performance and has no foam, no midsole – just Air.

Air Max 2015

The Air Max 2015 maintains the full length Air Sole unit like its predecessors, adding Dynamic Flywire technology for a more supportive fit. The mesh upper provides a breathable and lightweight run and the internal sock like bootie makes for a perfect fit.

With more colourways and models coming out of the Air Max family, the heritage sneaker style keeps us guessing every month of every year.
