The Air Max, which last read Parra's name, is now 20,000. "When we talked about the premium of this year's Parra X Nike Air Max 1, we can always hear this sentence. Even if the shoes have not been released yet, many people have already looked at her. The market is almost three times ahead. The selling price seems to reflect this problem from the side. If you compare the Nike Air Max 1 to a classic movie, then Parra is a box office guarantee. No matter what era, how to remake, this movie can be called and called. So what? What makes this artist so magical?

But Piet Parra, who is more than just an illustrator or designer, is now thinking about "How can I make something that others have never done?", so on this year's Air Max 1, we saw the city and The new design of the country pattern, while changing the Parra's iconic color and processing of the pattern. The reduced version of the Swoosh Logo's Air Max 1 always adds a finishing touch to the shoes. This is a ritual feeling. On this pair of Parra X Nike Air Max 1, not only the small Swoosh, but the signature of Parra appears again. The toe cap.


The relatives and friends are also an important part of Parra's cooperation with Nike. Compared with the past, this version of the relatives and friends of the Parra X Nike Air Max 1 can be said to have made a great breakthrough, not only in the use of color patterns. The reversal, the idea of removing the Swoosh on the side of the shoe is also very bold, and this design provides a great space for the placement of the pattern, and the visual effect of the whole pair of shoes has been greatly improved.

Nike Air Zoom Spiridon, born in 1997, is definitely an unpopular running shoe in the past few years. The religious name and the retro-style lines are all good old players. The Swoosh logo is small. Highlighting the exquisite design, we are fortunate to see this pair of shoes in this collaboration. Like the Air Max 1, Parra wrote his name on the toe of this pair of shoes. The small sign is there, it's perfect."
