CREDIT: Nike Nike Air Max enthusiasts who have been patiently awaiting the global release of Vote Forward winner Sean Wotherspoon’s corduroy-covered hybrid sneakers won’t have to hold out much longer.
Following two prereleases in November, Wotherspoon’s Air Max 1/97 VF sneakers are due for an official widespread launch on March 26 . Ahead of the drop, stock images from Nike’s e-commerce site have surfaced, offering the most detailed look yet at the anticipated style.
The design takes inspiration from his love for vintage Nike products, a passion which can be seen at Round Two, the bicoastal streetwear boutique co-owned by Wotherspoon. Corduroy hats were a key reference point, and their influence is evident on the Air Max 1/97’s multicolor corduroy upper, which blends pastel shades of blue, pink and yellow with earthy tones of brown, gray and green.

And if the vibrant color combination and unique materials weren’t enough to pique the interest of sneakerheads, Wotherspoon’s design is also packed with details. The shoes come packaged with four different shoelace options including a yellow pair with gold and silver aglets.

The sneaker itself combines the upper of the Air Max 97 with the sole of the Air Max 1, the original Air Max sneaker from 1987.
Previous opportunities to pick up this sneaker included exclusive drops at Richmond, Va.’s Need Supply and Undefeated in Los Angeles in November. Around the same time, a sample pair of the shoes sold on eBay for $96,100.
The Sean Wotherspoon x Air Max 1/97 VF retails for $160.
