Nike footwear is set to pay homage to Toronto, Ontario, with this city-inspired silhouette of the popular 'Air Max 1' shoe model.

The new shoe release features several distinct Canadiana-inspired elements including a red maple leaf on the sneakers tongue, and a Northern lights colored shoe liner complete with an outline of the iconic CN Tower. The sneaker has even been officially named 'The 6' after one of Toronto's distinctive nicknames.

Besides for several city-inspired decorations, the shoe also includes a fetching black and white colorway complete with an 'Air Max 1' air bubble for increased cushioning and comfort. The sneakers were also built with Toronto weather in mind. The shoes come complete with weather-resistant materials like 'Tech Tough' leather, woven textiles and waxed laces to help protect it from the harsh winter elements.
