In just a few months close to 1 billion people will be glued to their television sets as the 2010 FIFA World Cup kicks off in South Africa. In honor of what is no questionably the largest sporting event in the world, attracting almost 1/6th of the worlds population, Nike is putting together a variety of packs to honor some of the countries participating in the event. Just a few days ago we posted up some details about a project Nike worked up involving 6 World Renowned Artists putting together collections paying tribute to 6 World Cup teams and now we’ve gotten word on a pack of Air Max 1’s honoring one of the teams part of that very project, the Holland Football Team representing the Netherlands.
Since the Netherlands has become the home of the Air Max 1 thanks to the Patta 5th Anniversary releases Nike has put together a pack of Air Max 1’s in brand new never before used colorways to honor the Holland Football Team. The two-pack features one Air Max 1 in the Netherlands’ homeland colors of White/Orange Blaze/Neutral Grey/Vibrant Yellow while the second models dumps the Orange Blaze and sticks with White/Neutral Grey/Vibrant Yellow. As you would expect from the Nike Air Max 1 the upper is fabricated from a combination of leather, suede and mesh.
I’m not quite sure at this time whether or not the Air Max 1 “Holland” Pack will be available in the US but if you’re interested you can hit up Kix-Files now and place an order for either of the two if you want a pair.
