Nike taps on the imagination of sneakerheads once again to create an Air Max that best represents their city.

Check out all of the 18 designs below and discover more about the finalists’ designs.

One winner in each city

Out of the 18 Nike On Air designs that were selected by a panel of judges consisting of Nike designers and city ambassadors, only six will ultimately go from concept to actual production. Once again, the winners depend on the public’s votes.

Cast your votes

You can make a difference by voting for your favorite designs from each city: Paris, London, New York, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo. The voting round is currently ongoing and will close on May 13 at 11.59pm PST (May 14, at 2.59pm, Singapore Time). You may vote more than once, but you can only vote once a day. So, if you see a design that you really like, better make every day count by voting on the Nike On Air page.
