UPDATE: While Nike’s crisp white Air Max 1 Tinker “Schematic” was unveiled just days ago, a new iteration of the silhouette has surfaced.

Courtesy of spicychickenwings via Instagram, images of a blacked out Air Max 1 Tinker show detailed lines and scribbly labels that differ slightly from the previously seen white model. For example, its upper collar panels are etched with vertical lines, various notes are placed near the rear quarter and the inside is stamped with the words “SAMPLE PROPERTY OF NIKE NOT FOR RESALE,” hinting on the name of the colorway as “Sample.” Like the white pair, the sneakers are decked with a myriad of labels like “ADD U-THROAT,” “LATERAL VIEW” and “FASTER TOE BOX.” Other details like contrast stitching and white highlights around the midsole round up the sneaker.

No details of the official release have yet been disclosed, but stay tuned for more information about the upcoming sneaker.

ORIGINAL POST (Jul 1, 2019): Following up from Nike‘s Air Max 1 “Tinker Sketch”, unveiled just a few days ago, leaked images of another colorway inspired by Tinker Hatfield‘s sketches have surfaced, courtesy of hanzuying – the Nike Air Max 1 Tinker “Schematic.”

This time around, the sneakers come only in a palette of monochrome, the initial blueprint renderings of the Air Max 1 prototype. Each panel of the shoe is thinly outlined in black with descriptive markings like “Swoosh Out” at the Swoosh, “(FP) Suede 1.2mm” at the mudguard or “VQ/PK 005” at the heel. Various lines, arrows, dotted points, and scaled measures are also etched throughout the footwear. One distinctive highlight is tucked around the inner collar, reading “SCHEMATIC PROPERTY OF NIKE NOT FOR RESALE.” Nike branding is placed on the heel of the left shoe, while Tinker Hatfield’s signature appears on the right. Even the bottom of the outsole is detailed, with numbers and labels peering slightly through its semi-translucent rubber.

Though no official release dates have been revealed, the Nike Air Max 1 Tinker “Schematic” is expected to release this coming September.
