Nike has teamed up with a few different Latino artist to work on a new shoe collection said to be honoring Latino Heritage Month.
The collection will bring out four different styles of some of their most popular shoes including Air Jordan 1, Nike Air Force 1, Nike Air Max, and Nike Cortez.
The collaborators working on this project include Brazilian street artist Pomb, who worked on the Air Jordan 1. While Chilean artist, INTI, tagged in to help with the Nike Cortez’s to create a black and purple shoe with Latino symbols on the side panels of the sneakers.
They brought in another Chilean street artist, Wasafu, to work on the Air Max 1 concept, and finishing it off, they brought in Mexican artist Saner to help create the new Nike Air Force 1’s, which chose to go with a cheetah makeover.
While the prices have not been released yet, we are pretty sure that no matter the price, you will want them. To kick off the campaign, Nike’s Los Primeros Collection will release the Air Max 1 sneakers on September 15th. They will continue with the Classic Cortez’s on September 22nd, followed by the Nike Air Force 1’s on October 1st, and will finish it off with the Air Jordan 1 dropping on October 13th.
