Model: Air Force 1 “NYC: City of Athletes”
Key Features: The inspiration for this bricolage Air Force 1 is New York City and its immense sports heritage. Just like the “What the LA” Air Force 1 before it, this colorway pays tribute to all of the sports and franchises that call NYC home. For example, Yankees pinstripes and baseball-like stitching are paired with basketball leather-style patches on the heel.
Release Date: October 17
Editor’s Notes: The quintessential New York shoe, the Nike Air Force 1, pays tribute to the city’s sports teams and fans with a patchwork-style design that pulls colors and textures from the various sports played in NYC. The sneaker also features a mini-Swoosh on the mudguard and graffiti-style “New York” branding on the heel and insoles. Watch for this “What the: New York” Air Force 1 to drop on October 17 for $130.
