Dropping this Air Max day, Nike has brought back the original of the original! The Nike Air Max Zero Yellow is finally getting released, Tinker Hatfield’s initial idea for the Air Max finally comes to life.
If you already have the Nike SNKRS app then you might have already be privy to a pair of these, however, for the rest of us, the drop date announcement is news of excitement for the Tinker Hatfield classic creation.
The Air Max Zero was the original, before the original and when they dropped in blue and white last year, Air Max fans spent the whole year speculating which colour would come next. Tinkers first sketches of what we know are the Air Max 1 were drawn in yellow and white and finally his original creation comes to life. We take an in-depth look at the Nike Air Max Zero Yellow before the drop date.

Nike Air Max Zero ‘Tinker Sketch
In 1985, Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker set out to make the invisible visible. The task was thought by many to be impossible, but in true Nike fashion, the unthinkable came to life with the 1987 release of the Air Max 1. Tinker’s Air Max Zero concept sketches, however, would go unseen for nearly three decades until its debut in 2014.
Now, the Air Max Zero has resurfaced. The legendary design that pre-dates the chronicled beginning of the Air Max legacy is back in a colour scheme utilised in the once undeveloped concept sketches by Tinker.
Featuring elements from the iconic Air Max 1, the Air Max Zero includes a sock-like upper, bootie-inspired construction and heel clip detail. A cored-out Phylon sole provides lightweight comfort, helping establish the forward-thinking design as the lightest Air Max model yet.
