They Keep You Alive
Illustration for Nike Air Max
The idea behind this visual was inspired by the name and the trainers. The concept was to show the trainers in the shape of a pair of lungs to symbolise the breathing of oxygen, as the essence of the trainer was it's lightness. The end line, They Keep You Alive, plays on the notion that the trainers are vital to you, as air is to your lungs, therefore keeping you alive in all sense of the word.
The Air Max Lite was initially released in 1989, 2 years after the Air max 1 (AKA Air Max 87).
