Nike pays homage to legendary sneaker designer Tinker Hatfield with the Nike Air Max 1 Tinker "Sketch To Shelf", now available on StockX. Tinker Hatfield started working for Nike in 1981 as an architect designing stores. In 1985 he made the decision to transcend into shoe design and the rest is history. Tinker’s first design ended up being the legendary Air Max 1 that debuted in 1987, the first shoe to openly display the Air Max unit.
These "Sketch To Shelf" 1s are directly inspired from Tinker’s first sketches of this revolutionary sneaker. The mudguards, Swoosh, and upper overlays are colored in a sketch-like format, exposing blank canvas and suede under brush strokes of color. His signature is spotted on the heels, with "Sketch, Property of Nike, Not For Resale" printed on the sockliner. Sketch lines printed on a translucent outsole complete the design. These sneakers released in July of 2019 and retailed for $150.
