The Nike Air Max 1 ‘The 6’ is inspired by none other than Toronto and will have two release dates this month.
The shoe’s Toronto-specific features include rubberized coating on the all-white outsole and airbag. Designed to prevent cracking, it is a first for the Air Max silhouette. Additionally, Tech Tough coated leather, buck leathers, technical woven textiles and a waxed lace, exclusive to this release, help combat cold, wet Canadian winters.
The shoe’s sock liners are inspired by the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, best viewed in the Canadian North, the heart of the Auroral zone. Meanwhile, the graphic on the sock liner features Toronto’s architectural claim to fame: the iconic CN Tower, which stands at the center of the city.
Nike Air Max 1 The 6 Release Date
