I got them before, but sold them.
In my opinion it is ridiculous that its red brother is a grail to many people. What does that model have apart from a different swoosh on the inside? That one is even shaped like the new Air Max 87s, really bad.
This one is one of the last old shaped ones.
A well ending point to a model. At least a shape.
Back then they made five different versions for their (Pattas) fifth anniversary in five availabilities.
stolen pics, different sources
(The first was the rarest, the last was quite common)
The Pattas have grown into grails for especially newer people, I’ll never get why.
People even get mad when I tell them the cordury Patta was reduced when it came out. Nobody wanted them. Now it is the hot shit. I experienced that myself, no heard story here.
I think the inspiration behind the green and purple pair is the “History of Air”-version, they have the same special tongue.
As it was in my collection it was a nice way to spot newbies:
If they found only that one pair of interest, they were new heads, raised by the hype.
Colored tips are always a nice touch.
It is actually my third pair, believe it or not. I got it at release for retail, one used pair in a trade some time ago and now this one. It is in a really good condition and giving them away will not be easy, if at all possible.
It’s an us 8.
