Original Story (07/15/21): Dutch sneaker and streetwear boutique Patta has a long-standing partnership with Nike, releasing various Air Max collabs together over the years. Their next collaboration has just been revealed, a new take on the Air Max 1.

Leaked images of the shoe show an Air Max 1 dressed in white and burnt orange. The most interesting detail is the wavy shape of the mudguard, which features a wavy design. This mudguard comes in burnt orange, matching the shoe’s Swoosh and top eyelets. White mesh and leather make up the rest of the construction. Underfoot lies a sail midsole and tri-colored outsole. A shot of the special box reveals its Patta and Nike co-branding as messages such as “Patta Got Love For All” and “Get Familiar.”

Grab a first look at the Patta x Nike Air Max 1 below. Expect a release later this year via Patta’s website  SNKRS, and select retailers.
