Editor’s Notes: Nike’s Patch Pack from early 2015 was one of the more popular non-collaborative releases that the Oregon company has put out in recent years. Three years on the Swoosh is bringing back customizable patches on two popular silhouettes: the Air Max 97 UL and the Air Max 90.
One could argue that Nike’s Patch Pack was an early influence on the DIY culture that has swept the sneaker industry, with brands like OFF-WHITE and A-COLD-WALL* releasing deconstructed versions of popular Nike silhouettes and consumers customizing their favorite sneakers at home in an attempt to be original and stand out.
Check out the product shots above and then head to UNDEFEATED via the links below to cop yourself a pair from the pack. Unfortunately the Air Max 90 HAL is sold out already, so you’ll have to be quick if you want the 97.
