To mark the opening of its Nike Berlin flagship store on Tauentzienstr, the athletic wear giant created a special color scheme based on last year’s Nike Air Max 1 SP “German Camo” from the popular “Country Camo” Collection. Technically known as Flecktarn, or “Spotted Camouflage” in German, the disruptive pattern became a standard issue among the Heer (Army), the Luftwaffe (Air Force), and the Marine (Navy) of Germany by the early 1990s. Comes in variations of 3-, 4-, 5- and 6- color patterns, other nations also apply similar design to their combat uniforms, including India, China, and Japan.
50 pairs were made of this Nike Air Max 1 SP “Camo – Germany”, though sold to friends and family only. There will another opportunity still as Sneaker Freaker Germany and BEINGHUNTED hosts a giveaway this week. In the meantime, you can visit the new Nike Berlin West at Tauentzienstr. 9-12.
