Year: 2006

To accompany State Magazine's (Dutch Hip Hop website) "Homegrown" compilation album, Patta was called on board to work on this project alongside State and Nike. The Air Max 90 has been a staple in the Dutch (and Euro) streets ever since the Infrareds, so the classic runner silhouette was an easy pick. Nike sat down with us and some of the featured artists: Winne, Nina and Sef. Since the album artwork was based on leaf patterns, it was only natural to match the shoe for continuity. The green upper is contrasted with a clean white midsole, a gum outsole and orange lining to make the whole thing pop. Other details include a micro perforated toebox and cork sockliner. Promotional friends & family pairs were produced in an inverted colorway and bear a "State Magazine" tonguelabel. The Air Max 90 Homegrown purchased at the Patta-release included the Homegrown CD and a mini booklet.
