Original Story (07/22/22): One of the most celebrated releases of 2021 was the Patta x Nike Air Max 1 “Wave” series. The shoe released in four colorways and is now getting a couple more. Following a reveal of a fifth colorway in white, we now have a look at the sixth colorway.
The sixth entry in the Patta Air Max 1 “Wave” series features a mix of colors found throughout the previous colorways. The upper comes in burnt orange leather, nodding to the orange “Monarch” colorway, with additional pops of burnt orange used for the laces and lip of the tongue. The magenta hue on the sockliner is similar to the “Rush Maroon” colorway, while pops of teal on the heel embroidery, insoles, and top eyelets are pulled from the “Noise Aqua.” Finally, the outsole and tongue tag come in black, nodding to the black Patta Air Max 1.
