Sean Wotherspoon has reportedly confirmed that he will not be collaborating with Nike for some time, instead focusing on other projects. Wotherspoon raised the bar with Nike back in 2017 when he was chosen as the winner for Nike’s Vote Forward Air Max contest to design a sneaker. Wotherspoon’s Air Max 97 x Air Max 1 hybrid released locally in 2018, just before Air Max Day. The shoe stands as one the best releases for 2018 with its colorful appearance and the corduroy upper inspired by vintage Nike hats from the ‘80s.

Wotherspoon has confirmed to Complex the end of their partnership and mentioned there will be no another SW collab.

“I’ve been done working with [Nike], at least on another SW collab, for a while. Still lots of good friends there. I help when asked, but being able to spread my wings again is the best feeling ever,” Wotherspoon said.
