MAX100 x Nike Air Max 1 – Rendered as Originally Intended

The MAX100 Project was a collection of Air Max 1s envisioned in never-before-conceived concepts and ideas, so news of the MAX100 x Social Status partnership in which ten designs would be produced was an absolute dream come true for all parties involved. Given the confines of Nike iD, the final ten designs came out pretty well, but some of the discrepancies between the original Matt Stevens design and the final shoe were painfully evident. The Air Jordan III-inspired design, for example, didn’t have elephant print, and some of the designs might’ve been too difficult to pull off on Nike iD. One sneakerhead who had been following the progress of the MAX100 x Social Status release took it upon himself to render some more accurate versions, going tit for tat with Matt Stevens’ amazing artwork. Upon seeing these, we can’t help but wish that Nike had gone the extra mile with this project to make these a little more true to their original concepts. Check out some of the renderings done by Rogier Mulder below and let us know which is your favorite!

Social Status x MAX 100 x Nike Air Max 1 – Shoes Revealed

September 4th, 2012 by | 8 comments

A little over two years ago, Sneaker News readers got their first look at themed Nike Air Max 1 schematics by graphic artist Matt Stevens. Matt’s Air Max 1-A-Days started as an online project, saw its first exhibition upon Schuh-You’s Afew reopening last summer and clinched a Kickstarter goal soon after that wound up with these delightful takes on the original Air Max runner bound in a hard cover. A short while after the MAX100 book hit came off the presses, we got our first glimpse at what might happen were Steven’s sketches to be made into actual AM1s.

Dusseldorf, Germany has been central to the expansion of this project, but it’s Stevens’ home town of Charlotte, North Carolina that sees its top-tier Nike Sportswear retailer step up to push the envelope even further. Social Status’ southern location will help to bring ten different designs to realization, the first five of which you’ll see in greater detail after the jump below. Proceeds from the auctions on these limited editions will benefit Charlotte-area charities, and Sneaker News will bring you the second half along with more details on availability shortly.

MAX100 x Social Status x Nike Air Max 1 Collection Preview

In 2011, Matt Stevens created the MAX100 Book Project – a high-end book that contained one-hundred different interpretations of the Air Max 1. Each of the 100 designs were astoundingly distinguished, using an interesting collection of inspirations like the speedy yellow and black of a  New York City taxicab and the marbled red and white of a rib-eye steak. The first MAX100 design came to life when Matt collaborated with Afew in late 2011 for a limited edition release that featured the MAX100 wallpaper insole, but in September, ten of these amazing designs will come to life in a unique charity-driven auction in conjunction with Social Status. Each of the ten selected designs will be composed via the Nike iD program and feature its own distinct custom insole, and will be accompanied by a signed copy of the MAX100 book. A custom wooden box with laser engravings and metal plates signifying the true ’1-of-1′ nature and the name of the design will house these amazing productions as well. The proceeds from these auctions will benefit local charities in the Charleston, NC area, where Social Status is situated. Stay with Sneaker News for more updates on this exciting collaboration and take a look at the ten selected designs below!

After re-opening its store after a brief renovations (the glow-in-the-dark floor being just one of the sick structural elements of the venue), Afew (formerly Schuh-You) has held a few sick events at its retail spot, like the Vintage Gallery Event (hands down one of the best sneaker exhibits of the entire year) and more recently, the MAX100 Launch Party. Matt Stevens’ MAX100 book has created positive waves across the sneaker community, particularly with Air Max 1 fans (like, everyone in Europe!); Afew opened its doors for a special pop-up exhibit showcasing some of Stevens’ best works from the book while offering some food, drinks, and live DJ’ed tunes. Check out a quick re-cap of the Afew x MAX100 Launch Exhibit below and don’t forget to cop one of the limited edition MAX100 books here. via EuKicks.
