Nike Sportswear Air Force 1 “Hamptons”

Nike Sportswear created a shoe for the famous Hamptons vacation destination on the US East Coast.

New York, DC, and Philly, all have an Air Force 1 created through their inspiration. Earlier this summer Long Island became a new member of this esteemed list with the release of the first ever Air Force 1 created for Jones Beach. To continue to build on the excitement of the summer season, Nike Sportswear brings you yet another release for Long Island, this time for the Hamptons. Fashioned in all white calfskin with perforated detailing, the Air Force 1 x Hamptons was inspired by the most classic color of the season and the events created in its honor. With the signature laurel leaf H crest embroidered on the tongue tab, the foot bed of the left and right shoe reads, Good Ground, signifying the original name given to the area when once populated by native communities. The Air Force 1 x Hamptons is then finished off with a transparent gel sole that reveals a graphic of the silhouette of Long Island. By taking a Nike Sportswear icon and twisting it through design, the Air Force 1 x Hamptons becomes more than a mark of style, but an emblem of the community.

The shoe will be available this weekend, exclusively at Blue&Cream in the Hamptons.

Have a closer look after the jump.
