In celebration of the next generation of Nike Air, Nike Toronto partnered with a select group of local artists to turn their imagination into reality using the Air Max 270 as inspiration.
Nike then created a gallery style event in Toronto called “AIR MOVES TORONTO” with local artists; Mike Sunday – a motion designer, Maria Qamar, AKA Hatecopy – a pop artist, Corey Moranis – a lucite jewelry designer, and Hallie Tut, photographer and multi-media artist.
The event opened at 5pm and as expected there was a line-up around the building, but it moved quickly and we were inside within 20 minutes. It was not a big space so was super crowded and made it hard to get photos of the art (so please excuse the bad quality photos).
We also shopped at the gift counter where everything was $3.26. Many items were already sold out, although we heard that it was restocked later in the evening. We picked up a few pins by Hatecopy to add to our collection at the office.
The event did not top last year’s Nike Air Max 30th Anniversary celebrations, but was still great to drop in and see the art gallery firsthand.
