The Sean Wotherspoon x Air Max 97/1 2018 release is one that is highly anticipated by fans who follow this sneaker series. The Air Max 97/1 may have been inspired by his love of the 1980s culture by combining the classic Air Max 1 style with the newer Air Max 97.

These sneakers release on a limited basis, which really makes them even more highly-sought after than many other shoes out there. Just by the looks of this release, you can understand why he won the “Vote Forward” for his unique but classic design.

Sean Wotherspoon is someone who values family and community. When deciding on the scheme of the sneaker, there’s no question in who Wotherspoon’s going to for help. Turning to his closest friends and family for help, his goal is to create something reflecting the importance of community along with the 1980’s retro feel.

In his words, he wants a sneaker that represents his focus on “by the community, for the community”. These are all things that work together to make the new Air Max even more special. Anyone can buy a sneaker but not everyone can buy a sneaker that means so much to the designer and his close-knit community.

One of the first things that you will notice about the new Sean Wotherspoon x Air Max 97/1 is the sleek retro color scheme. The inspiration for the color scheme of this new Air Max comes directly from the 80’s. Every panel has its own retro color: forest green, purple, blue, pink, and yellow. Also, the sole has the same color scheme as the rest of the sneaker.

The upper includes corduroy pull tabs, a small blue Swoosh on its lateral toe, Swoosh styled smiley faces, and tongue patches that are made of Velcro. The Velcro patches can also be switched out depending on your mood or preference, whether you want a blue Swoosh or a wave. You will also find four different lace options that are pre-packaged along with this sneaker. The corduroy material this release adds to the overall retro feels that Wotherspoon hopes to portray.
