“I want to create a high-end art book of a hundred visual interpretations of the greatest sneaker of all time.”
Each of us has their own corresponding model, but when artist Matt Stevens said that in discussing his latest project, he was referring to the Nike Air Max 1. 1987’s flagship runner has seen well more than a hundred colorways over the past quarter-century, but Matt might very well have the stuff it takes to work as a Nike Sportswear designer. His takes on the AM1 range from NYC taxi-themed to something better suited to art than wearing like stained glass. Stevens’ Air Max 1-a-Days series had already given way to a small printing of hand-bound books but now he’s putting up the MAX100 book up on venture capital website KickStart to gauge interest for a larger run. Click through to see a video rundown of this unique execution and let us know how this compares to the ever growing library of sneaker books.
