Nike is releasing two new Air Max 1 models in the upcoming City Pack, honouring the cities of London and Amsterdam. With Amsterdam being one of the most prominent Air Max 1 cities globally, solebox wants to celebrate the Amsterdam-inspired Air Max 1 by acknowledging the importance of the Air Max 1 in the Dutch hip-hop scene. To shine a light on the new generation of talented Dutch artists, we teamed up with two upcoming, Amsterdam-based rappers, sor and Josbros, to talk about the city, their careers and the connection between Air Max and Amsterdam.
Both Air Max 1 models arrive dedicated to two different cities and each take on a very different makeover.
The Amsterdam model features a colour palette representing the city’s signature accents inspired by the brick buildings and cobbled streets in the center of the city. Additionally the Nike logo on the heel is enclosed by an embroidered top view of the Amsterdam canals. On the mudguard you can find the iconic three red Andreas crosses, which we all know from the coat of arms of Amsterdam.
