Here we give you a look into what must have been quite an experience, the “sneakerball” 2013 even by Nike was placed this year on the roof of theGeorges Pompidou Center, the very building that inspired Nike designer Tinker Hatfield when he initially came up with the idea for the sneaker we now all know and love, the Air Max. The event featured a display that encompassed the 25 year span of the Air Max line, complete with special previews of a few Max’s we’ll see released in the near future. Click through to see the whole exhibit and see Tinker explain the inspiration for the classic Air Max. More photos after the jump.
