These Custom Parra x Nike Sneakers Are Works of Art


Recently, Nike and Parra renewed their long-running partnership with the colorful Parra x Nike pack which dropped on July 21. It comprised an Air Max 1, an Air Zoom Spiridon, and a matching tracksuit. Since then, several creatives from the sneaker community have taken it upon themselves to transfer or reinterpret Piet Parra’s eye-catching artwork on to other Nike silhouettes.

The sneakers were hotly anticipated and sold out almost instantly upon their release. While the Air Max 1 was the most sought-after model of the pack, there was also a Friends & Family version of the sneaker that a very select few received from Nike. Those lucky enough to receive a pair stunted on Instagram and gave us a lesson in how to style the kicks. Those that did not get lucky, however, either had to settle for resale or — in the case of the examples below — got creative.

Scroll through a selection of our favorite Parra x Nike custom sneakers below and leave your thoughts on each design in the comments.

Mache Customs brought Piet Parra and Virgil Abloh’s work together on a custom OFF-WHITE x Parra x Nike Air Jordan 1. The definition of hype.

Is it just us, or should more brands and creatives collaborate on the Nike Air Monarch?

@loudsoulscustoms did some great work on these Air Force 1s. Would you cop?

Can’t forget the F&F version…

Edwin Lanni, aka @hed_win, put his photoshop skills to work on this Parra x Nike Air Max 97 mockup, which we think would have been just as good as the original Air Max 1.
