Patta and Nike have unveiled their next installment to their ongoing “The Wave” collection and just like the initial drop, the project is centered around the release of a reimagined Air Max 1 collab.

The Amsterdam-based streetwear boutique revealed today that it has teamed up with the Swoosh yet again to deliver their latest “Noise Aqua” colorway of the classic running silhouette, which will be released before week’s end.

The latest iteration of the Patta x Nike Air Max 1 dons a Pure Platinum mesh upper combined with blue wave-like mudguard overlay panels as well as a mini Swoosh logo by the toe. Rounding out the design is a co-branded tongue tag, a sail midsole, and a multicolored rubber outsole.

This will be the fifth time that Patta has collaborated with Nike on the Air Max 1 but will be the second pair to drop for their latest capsule dubbed “The Wave.” The first Patta x Nike Air Max 1 style from this project was released last month in the orange-based “Monarch” colorway and quickly sold out within minutes.

The Patta x Nike Air Max 1 “Noise Aqua” collab will be released this Friday at Nike.Patta.Nl and at Patta stores for €160, which converts to $186.

Nike has teamed up with longtime collaborator Patta for a new collection and at the center of the project is a new take on one of the sportswear brand’s most iconic running shoes ever.

Hitting shelves this weekend is the Patta x Nike Air Max 1 collab dropping as part of the duo’s new capsule dubbed “The Wave.” The shoe features a gray mesh upper that’s coupled with soft suede overlay panels and a reimagined wavy mudguard panels in orange. The sneakers also come in special packaging including a special charm bracelet that celebrates Patta’s Surinamese heritage.

Coinciding with the product release, Patta has also created a new film series titled “The Wave,” which was created by the multifaceted creative Mahaneela who worked under the mentorship of critically acclaimed U.K. filmmaker Steve McQueen.

“We’re excited to launch the Air Max 1 and The Wave as the ignition point for a more purpose-driven evolution in our partnership with Nike. Product will always remain a thread of what we deliver, and together, we’re committed to developing nuanced projects and narratives that aim to truly serve and drive change for our community,” says Gee Schmidt, the co-founder of Patta.

Patta and Nike have delivered several Air Max 1 collabs in the past including the now coveted “Purple Denim” colorway in 2009, which resells for around $4,904 on StockX.

The Patta x Nike Air Max 1 collab will be released on Oct. 8 via SNKRS at 10 a.m. ET, at Patta.nl, and at Patta stores followed by a second drop at select Nike retailers on Oct. 15.
