Liverpool-based retailer SEVENSTORE has marked the return of the Nike Air Max 96 II with a new digital zine spotlighting its home city. Marking a quarter of a century since the silhouette first arrived, the editorial — titled “25 Years on the Streets” — features six important voices from Liverpool, shining a light on how the city has evolved in the last 25 years.
For the digital zine, SEVENSTORE has interviewed a range of characters, including the newly-elected mayor Joanne Anderson, who recently became the first Black female mayor in the country. Elsewhere, the zine features contributions from Metal Liverpool — an arts organization based in Edge Hill — a taxi driver, and the landlord of famous pub Ye Cracke. Rounding out the zine, the founder of Raggas cafe discussed the city’s Afro Caribbean community, and the owner of Golden Gloves boxing gym talks about the importance of community.
Take a look through some of the campaign images in the gallery above, and head over to the SEVENSTORE site to read all of the interviews from the digital zine. The Nike Air Max 96 II in its OG white colorway is available now retailers including SEVENSTORE.
As well as the original colorway, the Nike Air Max 96 II is also due to arrive in a duo of collegiate colors.
