The Dutch streetwear stalwart has been responsible for some of the most coveted Air Max 1s in history. With the model shaping up to be the Dunk’s successor as sneaker of the moment, Patta’s upcoming collaboration is expected to make a big splash.
Whereas Travis Scott (who also has a range of Air Max 1 collaborations pending) has given the model a drastic makeover, Patta’s design is much more subtle, with both the colorway, paneling, and color blocking staying as close to classic as possible. The biggest change is the design of the mudguard, which has been given a wavey update. According to rumors, the Patta x Nike Air Max 1 “Wave” will be released in two colorways — a light blue and an earthy brown.
Patta’s teaser consisted of a short film (in which snippets of the sneakers are teased) and a photo of the movie poster. The film stars a number of global stars, ranging from Mo Farah and Skepta to Little Simz and Martine Rose. Watch it below.
At the time of writing, however, neither Patta nor Nike have shared concrete release information. The first teaser indicates that more information is expected to follow soon, so stay tuned for any updates. In the meantime, you can delve into the history of Nike Air Max here.
