Parra x Patta Nike Air Max 1 NSW 21 Mercer Recap

March 18, 2010 | 85

Yesterday was the release of the Nike x Parra x Patta Air Max 1 at Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer. With much hype around the shoe, many were already camping the day prior without even knowing if the shoe would officially drop. TSG Vagrant was there to capture a few pictures of the release. That wasn’t the only thing I walked away with…

It was a pretty hectic morning and afternoon. There were many people already there when yours truly arrived around 10:30 am (Mercer opens at 11:oo am). With no idea if the shoe would release today, chance and luck were the words for the day. Below is a small pictorial of the event. At the end, 41 pairs were sold through a raffle and the rest is history.

    fuck the fact that they did a raffle and were madd shady about the whole drop in the first place….but FUCK 21 mercer for releasing 40 pairs out of a 150+ stock….and @rahrah your getting a little too crazy and coming outta face with ur comments…i wanna see ur 1 shoe – fuck outta here

  7. rahrah

    @smok3y obviously you must be very upset if you do not know the inventory do not speak on it there wasn’t 150+ pairs so u stop coming out your mouth was u even there or are u jumping into a conversation that you now nothing about and if you knew who i was you wouldn’t talk shit so recklessly

    how limited are these?
    Will these release anywhere else?
    price tag?

  9. low

    its sad that resellers get the BIG part of all this
    ive seen pair up to 1000$ on ebay
    and no one has said anything about retail price?

  10. Kickz4show

    Since mercer set a time for the raffle, they should have tweeted to give people waiting on a tweet a chance. The “girl” is just as shady she lies….

  11. LOL at the reselling shitbags on eBay, asking upward of $600 for these…..eat dogsh*t and keep dreaming, and if you pay that much, you need your head examined. Believe I’ll have my pair before this weekend is over, for retail.

  12. This how i see it, i have the money to buy my kicks but when these Stores and corporations lies, it doesn’t even suprise me anymore. Anyone who knows me here know that i hate Nike. They are soo f ing shady, the employees are shady and dissorganized because that’s exactly how their corporations function.

    I can go on and on but it’s not even worth it. I just wish they were enough smart people who collect sneakers so we could have a voice and have this corporations respect us and place some ethical laws in place agains them, but instead no one ever take action into matters.

    I had to call last time and leave a voice message to them lol… even if they didn’t listen to it i felt satisfied and wouldn’t be shopping there anytime soon. I never care about missing out on a shoes if someone was there before me, but i care dearly when these scumbags employees lies straigh to your face with no shame. Its just dissapointing.

    Mercer did over 150 pairs. Only sold 41 to public. Rest are friends and family. Can anyone here honestly say if they worked there, they wouldn’t do the exact same thing all these employees did? They had been getting questioned for weeks about these, of course they’re gonna be over talking about them. If all the people that are complaining worked at Mercer, you’d be holding all the hot releases for you and your friends, so just put yourselves in their shoes.

    I tailed it over to Amsterdam, from Australia… only to get there… have the cats lose my bags. I tell em “F&^k it, find em later”. I high tail it to a cab only to find the one cabbie who musn’t know “Patta” “you know, sneakers?” so we driving around lost, i get there late… and i end up being in the first handful of late cats that miss out. Wanted these for MONTHS!! One shoe i would have given my whole collection for. I NEED these, you know? Heart goes out to all the heads that got stiffed at Mercer. Damn i hate re-sellers. $800-$1000. There is making a bit of profit… and then there is down-right disrespectful. I’d kill for these… but if a dude come up and offer me these at those R*PE prices… i’d punch em in the face.

  18. smok3y

    to all the cry babies..

    if you really wanted these sneakers bad, you should’ve just waited outside – everyday like everyone else. they obviously didn’t care about the twitter shoutout.

    and i’m sure for the next big release, all of you are going to be calling 21 mercer again.

    so get over it.

    LOl @ people who think this nsw mercer st customer service is shit.

    Patta is 20 times worse. They lie to everybody, even to regular customers.

    To get any service at patta ;u have to be in the hall of fame at least.

    These people at patta , eyeballing u ,like they are able to see ,how much $ ur having inside ur pockets ,when ur asking for some shoes,like ur salary is written on ur forehead.

    They give false info about everything.. the black patta tz ; ”we only have 100 pairs”.

    Numerous lies;when ur true to the game ,u dont do that.

    This parra am1 was a so called tz release,only 248 pairs. 248 my ass..

    A day before the release ,all the so called celebs ,just walked out with a box.. And then putting their pics on twitter ;”oh look i have the parra airmax already ;coz i licked ass early”

    For me all people are the same ;so fuck all privileged people lmao.

    And these people can be celebs ;but they nothing but shameless asskissers..These celebs grab a pair of shoes ;while some kid is waiting 20 hours in line ,to get a pair..

    ”Yea ;if u would be a celeb u would do the same” ;complete bullshit.

    I rather leave my ”celebrity” pair for a kid that sits their for 20 hours .

    U know why? coz i have been a kid myself; And bcoz i have personality. Thats Something many celebs have never heard of.

  30. optimus prime

    and oh yea ;i got myself a pair for retail waiting in line ,so i dont have to hate.

    I just get sick of how people are treated.

  31. SF

    @ rahrah, I need that size 10. gio_so_oh@yahoo.com

  32. sully420

    Rahrah——- What was your size that you were looking for? I’ve got an 11.5 and would love to trade for your 12.5. I wear a 13 and wanna keep them for myself.

    Holler at me. iandaman32@aol.com

  33. man i had no idea these were so limited a friend went to 1948 in london where they only had 15 pairs and couldn’t get any. These are super dope though loving the one colour upper looks sick. A raffle don’t seem fair though, surely you would be real angry if you were first in the queue and then didn’t get a pair no???

  34. Zemanel5000

    I know I’m going to be trashed for this, but whatever:
    I’m one of those guys re-selling the Parras for RAPE prices, and you know why? Because I spent 20 hours in line, with a freezing cold outside, just so I could be number 50 in line!!I absolutely love them, and the only way I’m gonna sell them is for an insane price!!If not, I’ll just keep them for myself!

  35. rahrah

    well i have a size 10 left if u want them leave ur email ill get bak 2 ya
