When sneakerheads were in lockdown, AKQA transformed their windows into a Nike shop window. People simply had to access nike.com, point their phones to the sky and find virtual cloud versions of Air Max 90 and 2090. These digital folders allowed sneakerheads to buy the drops first-hand and watch product demos in the form of new music videos from Brazilian rap icon Djonga, and funk superstars Mc Soffia and NGKS. This project turned air into a safe and interactive medium for creativity and an ongoing platform for digital Air Max drops.
