A Complete History of Patta Sneaker Collaborations

Patta x Nike Air Max 1 "Amsterdam"

Year: 2005

Every now and then, Nike hits up major cities worldwide to offer that city its own shoe. Often credited as a Patta collaboration, Patta only took on an advisory role for this one and it should really be credited to our family member Parra, whom we shared office space with when this project came about. The intended colorway for these was inspired by a local supermarket chain, but when the chain switched up their corporate identity and design, Parra canned the idea (although a few pairs do exist) and applied nighttime colors inspired by Amsterdam's Red Light District. Instead of the Nike Air logo, Parra's "Amsterdam is King"-logo can be found on the tongue and printed on the back of the heel. The sockliner features a nice big booty girl-design. There are not too many pairs of these in existence, and the friends & family pairs with embroidered Parra-signature on the mudguard are even more rare.
