After teasing the hand-painted sneakers last week, The Shoe Surgeon and Josh Vides drop their collaborative Nike Air Max 1 today. Offering the premium materials one would expect from a Shoe Surgeon custom, the Air Max offers a single-piece upper crafted from white python, with Japanese plonge — lamb — leather found in the sockliner. Vide elevates the silhouette with illustrative black lines painted by hand, creating a sneaker as playful as it is luxe.

The bespoke Air Max 1 can be had on The Shoe Surgeon’s site while the shirt is available on Reality-To-Idea’s web store.

Elsewhere, Nike is taking over an old cinema to showcase its latest ACRONYM collaboration.
