Nike Sportswear has produced a special Air Force 1 Low paying tribute to the country of Brazil. Featuring embossed text designed by Emicida, Pixote, Xará and Toddy, the sneaker celebrates the urban roots and unique culture of the country while subtly referencing the Brazilian flag with a black, yellow and green colorway. The gum sole is a great look.
On the tongue and insole you’ll see the phrase “É Possivel” (It is possible), which ties back to a short documentary of the same name, focused on basketball’s influence in Brazilian culture. Previously rumored to be a Brazil only release, these are now hitting US accounts including Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer and Shoe Gallery Miami.
