Remember the other Parra x Nike Air Max 1 that dropped earlier this decade? The one that somehow leaked into the stockroom of the famed Nike Outlet in Florida, only to be picked out by the the luckiest SOBs in the sneaker game? The one that now commands a resale value that may very well be a mortgage payment? Parra’s touch of alchemy turns any Nike into pure gold, and the upcoming Parra x Patta x Nike Air Max 1 is sure to follow suit. Releasing two days short of the ides of March, the once Friends-and-Family-Only pair has been raising levels of sneakerhead anxiety due to its probable super-limited release.
Check out these detailed images of the Parra x Patta x Nike Air Max 1; the color combo you see is almost a repeat of the Dutchman’s last Air Max 1, with the carpeted inner swoosh, Parra tongue-tag, and other trim carrying blue with the upper featuring a rich burgundy. The use of color in the jigsaw-esque bottom sole of the Air Max 1 is strikingly similar to Parra’s artwork. Be sure to read on for more images for the shoe that might require the first camp-out of 2010. via S&M.
