China Exclusive: Nike Air Force 1 High “China Hoop Dreams”

Nike’s upcoming “China Hoop Dreams” collection is packed chock-full of classic Swoosh Hoops silhouettes, so it’s only right that the timeless Air Force 1 High is getting in on the action. A true basketball classic from 1982 that’s since become a street style favorite, the Air Force 1 High is big, bold, and powerful, and that ethos is interprited perfectly here. Both shoes call upon a white leather base layer with a barely-visible reflective print that lights up under a flash plus a black throat/laces, but they differ vastly in their accents. The left shoe opts for a hot red on the midsole, Swoosh trim, and removable strap, originally known as a proprioceptus belt, while the right shoe applies a rich bluish-green hue in all the same spots for a compelling yin and yang of styles. Special tongue badges and lace deubres then complete the look. These fabulous Forces will release exclusively on Nike SNKRS China and at Chinese retailers for 799 Chinese yuan or roughly $110 USD.
