The city of Amsterdam and the Nike Air Max 1 have been synonymous for the better part of the last 25 years.During that time, the people of Patta have lent their creative vision to Tinker Heyfield’s iconic design, the latest result being “The Wave,” a thematic capsule that touches on riding the social tide.
In anticipation of the 35th anniversary of the sneaker and Air Max family, Swoosh & Strap released a couple of the latest Air Max 1s, which feature a brand new wavy mudguard to return to the above theme.The predecessors donned the “Noise Aqua,” Monarch, “Rush Maroon” and “Black” colors, while the next installment of Patta’s “The Wave” project opts for a clean “White/Pure Platinum/Metallic Silver” ensemble.
The darkest of the three primary colors of the sneakers takes on the breathable mesh base layer, allowing the rest of the components to divide the contrasting tones.The traditional and updated overlay in “White” upper side colors, though the profile strays into a silver that compliments the rest of the shoe nicely.Co-branding is visible throughout the shoe, while a non-standard short swoosh is embroidered on the lateral forefoot.Underfoot, the strap adds an “aged” look to the Air Max’s sole unit, a design decision that satisfied not only consumers’ current interest in “neo-vintage” footwear, but the team’s decades to build Hatfield since 1987. It also shows old love.In addition, the slightly-pale middle console stands the test of time, a concept that’s central to the “The Wave” narrative.Similar to previous versions of the modified United Endeavor, shoe boxes come with strap branding;However, the bracelet included with other styles may have been excluded.
Enjoy the pair’s product imagery, as you look forward to securing the shoes soon via Nike SNKRS and August 26th via Patta.nl.
