It looks like the Nike Air Max 1 LHM Los Primeros will be the first model from the Los Primeros Pack to release. Releasing later on this week, today we place out focus on the artist behind the design of the shoe.
The Nike Air Max 1 LHM Los Primeros was designed by Latin American street artist, Wasafu. The design of his Air Max 1 takes inspiration from nomads, particularly the Ona people of Patagonia, who for centuries have migrated from unforgiving conditions seeking opportunity and hope. He uses his artwork on the Air Max 1 to portray a powerful representation of their self-expression through ceremonial body paint. The design of the shoe consists of a White mesh upper paired up with University Red detailing on the Swoosh, tongue branding and mudguard. A Grey geometric print is placed on the overlays, White pinstripes on the Swoosh and mudguard and Wasafu’s signature on the heels complete the look of the shoe.
The Nike Air Max 1 LHM Los Primeros will be releasing on September 15th for the retail price of $150.
