Nike Air Max Turns 30 With Designer Shoes and Bold Fashions

It was 1987 when the world first, err, ran into the Nike Air Max. The original was by Tinker Hatfield, actually an architect who started at Nike designing stores but eventually segued into sneakers (he’s now the company’s vice president of special projects and design).

The creation by Paula Cánovas, who’s earning a master’s in fashion, was quite high-minded: “Even though I’m a textile designer, I like 3-D—fabrics that create shape,” she says, “this in particular referencing sculptor Lars Englund.”
