Every now and then a release comes along that gets artists frothing. Illustrators recreate it, customisers whip up homages, memes pour in and the drop becomes a ‘remember when’ for sneakerheads to reflect on. It’s a rare feat, but Parra’s recent Air Max 1 colab has pulled it off.
The colab dropped last weekend and made headlines when stores forced resellers to wear pairs out of the store — a blow the profiteers tried to mitigate by scrubbing outsoles clean straight after. Since then, the sneaker has launched a myriad of epic sneaker-art tributes. Those who spend their days in sneaker-related corners will have seen a number already. But for those who don't, we’ve compiled some of the best here.
