Three-time Olympian Stephanie Au celebrated Air Max Day 2018 earlier in the year, designing her own Air Max 270. That would go on to inspire Nike‘s latest 270, using her original Swarovski crystal reimagination.

Nike naturally turned the Hong Kong swimmer’s milieu into water-inspired designs. That translated into a metallic silver panel on the rear and the numbers “00:59:99” are also printed, representing Au’s goal time in the 100m backstroke. Although she has yet to achieve the time, the number is there to reflect her athlete mentality and continual mindset of always pushing her boundaries and challenging herself. On the otherwise white mesh upper, a translucent-blue Air Max unit completes.

Watch our exclusive unboxing above, swimming pool shoe box and all.
