Nike X SneakerBR AM1 "Lanceiro" Quickstrike

Brazil infamous sneaker site SneakerBR is lauching their collaboration work with Nike to produce this unique Air Max 1 Quickstrike Lanceiro in conjunction with their 2 years anniversary of documenting in the world of sneakers.

As quoted by SneakerBR:

"The blue leather combined with white recalls the flag of Pernambuco, the yellow air capsule symbolizes the sun, and the speckled midsole reminds the mud and mangroves of the swamps, vital icons of the state’s culture that "baptized" the Manguebeat movement."

"The heel tab features the emblematic phrase of Chico Science “Um Passo à Frente e Você Já Não Está Mais No Mesmo Lugar” (One step ahead and you’re no longer in the same place) with reflective effect - which also echoes Nike Sportswear’s spirit, of remixing and reconstructing the brand’s greatest sports icons, updating to the 21st century while still keeping a link with the past."

The sneaker will be available at selected stores worldwide soon and at the same time a highly limited wooden edition of this kick will also be distributed among major influencers internationally.
