One of the stores that helped make Nike Air Max sneakers coveted in the late 2000s and 2010s is linking back up with the Swoosh for a new project.
Amsterdam retailer Patta is set to release a new set of Air Max 1 sneakers soon, and today we have a first look via images shared by Twitter user @StashedSNKRS. The pair pictured is said to be one of two styles on the way, this one coming in Metallic Silver/Monarch/Pure Platinum while a second colorway is expected to feature similar blocking in Metallic Silver/Noise Aqua/Pure Platinum. The early information comes courtesy of @pyleaks, which is also listing an expected retail price of $160 for the pairs.
The Patta x Nike Air Max 1 uses a design reminiscent of the sneaker’s original looks but remixes the mudguard with a jagged wavy section instead of the traditional smoother cut. Other details include a premium white leather, mini Swoosh at the toe, and a mesh bash. Given the Metallic Silver call out in the colorway, it’s also possible that this pair will feature reflective 3M portions. The collab will also come packaged in a custom box.
Check back for more Patta x Nike Air Max 1 release date details and a look at the second colorway soon.
