Thank Drake Now: Nike Is Making Air Max 1's for "The 6"
Whether you love him or hate him, there's no denying that rap pop megastar Drake has done big things for the city of Toronto. Not only has he worked wonders as the Toronto Raptors' global ambassador, but he's also got everyone on earth referring to the city as "The 6" for some reason. Drizzy's had a long working relationship with Nike, who are now paying tribute to the 6 with a new sneaker.

As SLAM reports, Nike will put out a new Air Max 1 model called "The 6." The shoes include the phrase written on the inside, as well as a purple maple leaf on the tongue.

The 6 kicks will go on sale on December 6 at Nike.com as well as through certain Toronto retailers. Americans wanting in on the action can also lace up some 6 sneaks on December 17 when they hit certain U.S. retailers.
