When Centre Pompidou first opened in Paris back in 1977, many reviled its radical design. The architects to blame were Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers who intended to develop the polarizing structure inside out. For one, it’s packed with utilitarian qualities such as pipes, air vents, and electrical cables that make up its external facade. The structure, which is home to a slew of cutting-edge art exhibitions, garnered acclamation over the years and shifted the perception of the architecture industry as a whole. One of its admirers is Tinker Hatfield who credits the establishment for inspiring his Air Max 1 design.

Nike is now paying homage to Centre Pompidou with a special AM1 pack. The limited offering is comprised of two unique makeups that boast colored tubes across its uppers — a nod to the Parisian building’s design. Another standout highlight is translucent outsoles embellished with an oversized P logo next to a miniature Swoosh.

Official release details are still pending, but check out both renditions above and let us know your thoughts. In other footwear news, the Shoe Surgeon is planning to hold a $3,000 USD “Shoe School“ that focuses on creating the Air Jordan 1.
