With the help of Drake, the Raptors, and other entertainment influences, Toronto has recently earned pop culture accolades—and will be the destination for the 2016 NBA All Star Game. The city is now commonly referred to as “The 6” due to its six boroughs (and more Drake influence). As Toronto continues to rise, Nike Sportswear figured it was time that the residents have a sneaker they can proudly call their own.
Introducing “The 6,” an Air Max 1 model with Toronto-specific features, including a “rubberized coating on the all-white outsole and airbag”. Check out the pictures above to get a closer look.
The shoe will be available starting December 6 on Nike.com and at select Toronto-area NSW retailers. It will launch December 17 at select US retailers.
