Amsterdam may be well-known for its stunning architecture and beautiful canals, but Nike is well aware of what the city truly has to offer. Teaming up in 2006 with Patta and State Magazine, Amsterdam’s premier hip hop publication, the release of the Nike Air Max 90 “Homegrown” is a vivid display of design and imagery. Blending bright colors with certain inspirations from the homeland, this sneaker release with the Quickstrike label dropped in store at Patta, a place known for the hottest trends in the Netherlands. A choice color way of “grass” and “orange blaze,” the insinuations are mighty high when painting on the Air Max 90 canvas.

Going Dutch never became so stylish while rocking these limited trainers. With a grass-like design spreading throughout the uppers, white midsole, and gum outsole (matching the cork insoles), the Air Max 90 “Homegrown” became a great rendition of what the capital of Netherlands has to offer. This solid colored sneaker pair saw its designs centered around the release of State Magazine’s CD compilation of Dutch Hip Hop Artists named “Homegrown”. The release at Patta included the CD and booklet, a great way to honor the local messengers of flow. Premium materials on a premium sneaker, Patta is always finding ways to dish out new and exciting colors for the #sneakerholics and hip hop heads alike. The special release actually had another version, the second featuring a reverse color of the other. The big difference saw the all orange upper release with a special “state magazine” tongue tag, along with the fact that it was a friends and family only model. As rare as the green pair is, the orange pair is like finding Big Foot in the wild.
