Yesterday night I was lucky enough to go to a special event celebrating the release of the Air Max 1 “The 6” . The shoe pays homage to Toronto featuring the infamous CN tower on the footbed as well as a swirling “Northern lights” design. The shoe also features a compass on the heel- pointing North of course. I love the fact that even the materials (Tech Tough coated leather, technical woven textiles and waxed laces) are made to withstand the elements of the cold Canadian winter. My favourite feature has got to be the “White-out” air bubble sole, which not only makes the sole sooooo clean, but also adds further weatherproofing thanks to a rubberized coating.
The Air Max 1 “The 6” will be released December 6th at select retailers in Toronto, while the US release will be on the 17th.
