The ubiquitous Nike Air Force 1 is still a workhorse when it comes to combining form and fashion. To coincide with Chinese New Year and country’s appreciation of the shoe, Nike Sportswear is dropping the Nike Air Force 1 High “Nai Ke.”
Reports Sneaker News:
Bruce Kilgore’s Nike Air Force 1 has had a lasting appeal in the footwear industry, and for the past 30+ years the shoe continues to be a featured player in the Nike Sportswear lineup. The silhouette serves as a trophy of how it flawlessly blended hip-hop and basketball culture and today has just as strong a following in China as it initially did stateside. Having been introduced to Asia in the 1980s, Nike has since celebrated the Chinese New Year with special edition releases. This year, they’ll honor the heritage with this “Nai Ke” Air Force 1 High. Featuring a premium white leather, the Nike callout is featured predominantly on the back heel in Chinese. Check out the latest special edition Nike Air Force 1 release after the break and be on the lookout for this pair in mid-January.
We’d take these over the red and white Supreme Nike Air Force 1, but expect them to cost more.
