Last summer saw the FIBA World Basketball Championship take place and various festivals were put in place to celebrate this big event and the culture of basketball. Countries such as China, Brazil, France, Puerto Rico and USA all took part and to celebrate the events, Nike has released this bunch of Air Force 1’s which represent each country.
Each shoe has an all leather upper with a leather swoosh creating an retro feel. Each country has their flag on the tongue and the colours of the shoe take inspiration from each flag as well. The white outsole is accompanied by the iced outer-sole that has X’s and O’s all over, a little nod to the tactics that are involved in basketball games. More touches such as the embossed country name on the heel and silver tipped laces are a nice finish to these special AF1’s.
