“How could I do something that has not already been done?” – Piet Parra
History is on the side of Parra….for over a decade the brand has collaborated with Nike to deliver a number of Nike Air Max 1 projects and the mantle adds another this month. But it does not come alone…it comes with a friendly assist from the Nike Zoom Spiridon ’16. Since making its return two years ago, the tennis silhouette has become a sportswear darling making sporadic appearances since. Parra is changing things up with a playful AM1 in their first since 2009.
And change things up Parra did with the friends-and-family iteration of the Nike Air Max 1. Which features a very noticeable missing ingredient.
But the retail version is a little more in tune to the traditional feel of the Nike Air Max 1 that we’ve grown accustomed to for over 30 years. And that is Swoosh in tow. Completing the look is a tracksuit that mirrors the silhouette. The Air Max 1, Zoom Spidiron ’16 and tracksuit will be available on July 21st with the AM1 hitting SNKRS.
