Nike has big plans for celebrating Latino Heritage Month this year, as they are partnering with four Latino artists on four very special editions of iconic sneakers. Including the Air Force 1 Low, Air Max 1, Cortez, and Air Jordan 1, the collection features artists from Latino backgrounds from Chile to Los Angeles. See details on each below.

Nike Air Force 1 Low by Saner

From Mexico, street artist Saner adds a very bold look to the Air Force 1 Low, taking inspiration from pre-Hispanic cultures that believed the jaguar was a mystic with the power of survival in both life and death. The shoe features a faux jaguar fur upper with a black suede base, clear outsole, and grinning face on each heel. Available October 6th at select Nike retailers, Nike SNKRS, and Nike.com.

Nike Cortez by Inti

Chilean artist Inti has chosen the Cortez as his canvas, taking symbols of different Latin American cultures and united them in a single design. “INTI” is spelled out on the heels with two letters on each foot. Available September 22nd at select Nike retailers, Nike SNKRS, and Nike.com.

Nike Air Max 1 by Wasafu

A second Chilean artist, Wasafu, has designed the Air Max 1 within the collection, inspired by nomads of Hispanic regions. The eye-catching graphic designs are particularly inspired by the Ona people of Patagonia, who for centuries have migrated from unforgiving conditions seeking opportunity and hope. The graphics are a stylized interpretation of the Ona peoples’ body ceremonial paint. Available September 15th at select Nike retailers, Nike SNKRS, and Nike.com.

Air Jordan 1 by Pomb

From Sao Paulo, Brazil, and born Thales Fernando, Pomb graduated from the University of Brasilia with a degree in Industrial Design. He considers himself not only a graffiti artist but also a self-taught illustrator. At the young age of thirteen, his murals were already making their way throughout Brazil, and as an adult his work has now made its. His work is inspired by the environment, animals, and their vibrant colors. The shoes release on October 13th for $160.
