NikeLab Air Max 1 Patch / Nike Blazer Mid Metric QS "Royal Blue"
NikeLab takes the military inspiration a step further with the introduction of the Air Max 1 Patch. Featuring the same premium canvas upper and synthetic no-sew mud guard as those camo Air Max 1s, the new “Patch” edition of Tinker Hatfield‘s iconic runner comes packaged with 22 patches that reference key people, places and moments in the evolution of the Air Max — any of which can be applied to the shoe’s tongue for a customized look. Capping off the look is the appearance of the American flag on each shoe’s footbed.
Look for a trio of colorways to hit nike.com/nikelab and select NikeLab locations February 26 before making their way to additional spots across the United States March 12.
Following the release of its black predecessor, Nike has unveiled the “Royal Blue” Nike Blazer Mid Metric QS. The high top sneaker sports a rubberized hexagon “Metric” pattern across its bright blue body. Competing with today’s propensity of designer high top sneakers, a full tonal, blue wash has been extended to the rubber bottom sole, shoelaces, nylon mesh tongue and leather accents, as seen on the back heel tab. Nike’s latest is now available for pre-order from Rakuten.
