UPDATE: 6 God will show himself in stores in the 6 tomorrow.
It's hot up in the six right now, maaan, hot up in the six. False! It's fricken cold. Toronto was officially anointed as 'The 6' last year by self-appointed city spiritual commander Drake, apparently a nickname one of his homies devised that refers either to a phone code or the amount of boroughs in the city, and even Nike has ratified the nickname with a special Air Max 1 edition. Crafted to withstand the impending punishing Canadian winter, the black and white joints feature Tech Tough coated leather, woven textiles and waxed laces, plus dainty city shoutouts like 'The 6' label on the reverse tongue tag and an insole with a graphic of the Big Smoke skyline. Of course you can't ignore that big red maple leaf either. Select T dot sneaker shops will be getting this on December 6, plus Nike.com.
