In 2005 Shawn Stussy collaborated with Nike and released the Stussy SB Dunk Low. Fast forward 15 years later, Chase Shiel and The Kickz Stand was inspired to re-create the ‘Cherry’ on a Air Max 1 silhouette. Paying homage to a classic sneaker from 2005.
Check out all the ‘YUMMY & DELICIOUS’ details of the Air Max 1 ‘Cherry’
The ‘Cherry’ on top
Starting at the bottom, this creation uses a gum outer sole and white mid sole that’s encapsulating a pink air sole unit.
The upper is a combination of the classic Neapolitan strawberry, chocolate and vanilla flavours. The chocolate suede upper starts at the toe and wraps around the entire shoe. The toe box is completed with a strawberry Japanese nu-buck. Finally the swoosh has a pebble grain finish adding more texture to trilogy of flavours.
Finishing off with the detailing. The tongue has an embroidery tag of the triple flavour ice cream in a cone, embedded inside the tongue is the VeChain authentication chip. Chocolate leather lines the inside with a waffle print insole. The ‘Cherry on top’ (or heel) feature is a cherry motif embroidery.
The VeChain authentication chip is an encrypted NFC chip containing a unique ID on the VeChain blockchain, details behind the sneakers, images and exclusive footages. To access all this information from the NFC chip, you will require to download the VeChain Pro application on your smartphone. The VeChain Pro application is available on Android and iOS.
