When it comes to this year's hottest collaborations, we're not entirely sure which one we'd choose. From Off-White to sacai and even Yeezy, 2021 has seen so many ultra hyped sneakers drop. With all that said, the Patta x Nike Air Max 1 "Monarch" is definitely up there on the list. One of Edson Sabajo and Guillaume Schmidt's cleanest Swoosh sneakers to date, this is a collection essential that you definitely do not want to miss.
After a few long delays the holy grail has arrived. Set to finally drop on October 15th, it's safe to assume that these Nikes will sell out within seconds. If you want a pair in your rotation this season, we've compiled a few tips and tricks on how you can maximise your chances of getting a W later this week!
Releasing as part of the Dutch boutique's "The Wave" line-up complete with a series of complementary short films, the "Monarch" borrows the classic Air Max 1 silhouette and takes it to another level. Painted in a crisp white and orange palette, it's crafted from technical mesh, premium leather, and buttery suede for an ultra versatile fit that you can rock day in and day out.
Of course, you can't talk about this shoe without mentioning the wavey mudguards that gently wrap around the entirety of the model. This material arrives in a deep earthy hue which is perfect for the autumn and winter months ahead.
Absolutely need the Nike x Patta "Monarch" in your personal collection? Then the first thing that you need to do is follow us over on Twitter. By following @thesolesupplier, we'll update you on the latest news surrounding the release, while @thesolerestocks will keep you locked in with direct links and potential restock information as well.
Once you've done that, head to our raffle guide and enter every single one of them. As expected, there really aren't too many considering this AM1 is of grail status, so to increase your chances you can try and enter with multiple accounts. With that said, it's worth noting that some retailers will take money off you first so don't be alarmed. This is a normal procedure and it's been implemented to prevent bots from applying too many times.
The Patta Air Max 1 "White Orange" will be launching at 8am on October 15th through Nike SNKRS, so don't forget to set your alarms and mark your calendars. While they are expected to drop via a 15 minute draw, this could be subject to change so make sure you hold tight. If you want to increase your chances of getting a W, you can also borrow a friend or family member's phone to try your luck!
If there's one thing that we just can't stress enough, it's how important it is to have all your payment and address info saved and verified. Better yet, let your bank know that it's actually you who's making the transaction just so they don't put it on hold. This was a big problem for some sneakerheads who tried to cop through Patta's own site last week. We're still having nightmares of airplanes and cats even to this day.
If at this stage you still haven't copped, don't worry, as we've got another pretty good tip for you. Load up that IG app right now and follow every single retailer that sold the Nike x Patta Air Max 1 as they're known to re-raffle unclaimed pairs. This happens with the majority of hyped drops, so there's a huge chance that you'll be able to cop here.
If that doesn't work out, then you've got two more options. You can either go on StockX and get a pair sent straight to your door, or head on over to The Sole Supplier's dedicated Buy & Sell Group on Facebook where you can buy, sell, and even exchange trainers for the pair you want. You probably won't get them for retail here but we've got some pretty good and honest members so don't be surprised if you do.
And that's that! If you follow every single one of these steps, you've got a pretty good chance of copping the Patta x Nike Air Max 1 "Monarch" on October 15th! Make sure you keep it locked at The Sole Supplier for your best chance to cop, and if you're not sure what size to get, take a look at our handy size guide here!
