Nike's Air Max 1 silhouette is one of the most popular models for collaboration.
The latest iteration of the design is done through a partnership between the global footwear brand and the 'Missing Link' — animation studio LAIKA's upcoming film. Dubbed the 'Missing Link x Nike Air Max Susan,' the pair takes aesthetic cues from the movie's main protagonist Mr. Link. Tinker Hatfield collaborated on the upper with former animator Michael Berger.
A clear reference to the 'Missin Link' is exhibited through the playful plaid accent as seen on Mr. Link's suit. The Air Max 1 silhouette's patched up appearance also boasts a playful presence and is a great way to provide sneakerheads with a unique design and the 'Missing Link' with some publicity.
