sneaker news air max id finalists Sneaker News Nike Air Max 1 iD Design Contest Finalists

It didn’t take long for Sneaker News readers to submit their entries to the Sneaker News Nike Air Max 1 iD Design Contest, and after careful consideration, the Sneaker News staff whittled down the hundred entries into a solid group of ten. Some of the finalists feature the Denim Twill material that was all-new to the Nike Air Max 1 iD, while some spurned the new design option in favor of the classic suede and mesh while being dependent of a strongly composed colorway. The ten finalists selected capture the versatile nature of Nike iD, as some of the colorways below are either familiar or entirely fresh. Of course, the winner is selected by a popular vote, so be sure to vote for the winner on the poll at the very end – the polls close on Thursday, midnight!

I have to say that I'm not a fan of any of them. Just because Nike iD released a new material doesn't mean that ALL 10 picks should have been that material. Just sayin'

The Cowabunga sneakers are the best among the top 10! I'll definitely buy a pair. Good job Mik Gococo.

People complaining about no originality..... Think about what colors and materials they could work with.. They were as original as they could be. Cept for the other shoe colorways making on here.

Cowabunga is one of a kind. The design and the color combination captures the name itself. Very cool...... I Love it !!!

Honestly, most of these suck. But then again, AM1 isn't that great of a shoe anyway.

the un-original colorways were all executed very nicely, but I prefer something the person actually thought of themself and that is more unique than just another wu-tang colored sneaker

If these are the finalists I couldn't imagine what the other submissions look like. I thought this would be a great contest but it is unimpressive from what I've seen. Come on people, where's the originality? Where's the creativity? These all look like something that could be bought right off the rack! Note: I did not submitt an entry so it's not that I'm pissed off my design did not get selected.

i hate to break it to you, but what site would have the Jordan '11 YOTR for $60?? You do realize you posted a fake website on a sneakerhead website right?
