Showing the impact of a shoe through the voice of its biggest fans.

Nike AirMax was turning 30 and was looking for an idea that would celebrate Nike's most iconic shoe. Who else can show Airmax's revolutionary spirit if not its biggest fans? 

We decided to make Sao Paulo's sizzling sneakerhead culture oficial by creating its first headquarters and turning it into a stage for fans to come together and share their revolutionary ideas on music, sports, dance, culture and AirMax.

There's nobody better to embody AirMax's revolutionary spirit than the local people who are already making a difference in their communities. For each week of the AirMax month, a rising artist joined an acclaimed revolutionnaire to co-create something new in music, fashion, art and dance. To register the whole creative process, we created a weekly Instagram Story series called Rebels On Air.
