Sneak Peek: Nike Air Force 1 iD 'Air Max 1 Parra x Patta'

Posted by Speedy

My Nike Air Force 1 iDs finally arrived! Back in January, Nike released only a few hundred iDs online, and I immediately jumped on the opportunity to produce two of my own Air Force 1 Lows. I literally spent hours upon hours creating different designs and silhouettes, as both the Low and High options were available for iD. Finally, I drew inspiration from the Air Max 1 Parra x Patta.

Read more after the jump.


The Air Max 1 'Parra x Patta' was one of the most exclusive releases of 2010, and still draws a huge demand. Seeing as my favorite shoe is the Air Force 1, I took the opportunity to replicate this shoe as best as I could.

I started with an all suede sport red base, which is the closest option that was available to the burgundy on the Air Max 1. Followed up with a similar chenille swoosh, which mimics the swoosh on the Air Max 1. The midsole I kept as white, and finished the sole with a vibrant yellow, which was a crucial element on the Air Max. The other crucial element is the light blue which is visible on the eyestay, tongue, and sole. I was able to replicate this color on the laces, heel tab, and midsole stitching. I added the final touch of my signature of 'Rapido27'.

The quality on these iDs is spectacular. The suede is very soft, while the durability and comfort go above and beyond. Stay tuned for a review on my second pair of iDs.
