Editor’s Notes:  Nike and the NFL free-agent quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, continue their galvanizing partnership with this luxurious rendition of the classic Air Force 1.

Kaepernick was first spotted wearing the shoe at his NFL workout back in November. Following his social justice protest on the field, Kap has been kept out the league for over three years. This collaborative Air Force 1 not only marks the date of Kap's first kneeling protest, but celebrates it. With the distinctive detailing, Kaepernick leaves his mark on the legendary sneaker silhouette, as Nike commemorates his fight for justice.

The Air Force 1 x Colin Kaepernick releases December 23 in North America. It comes in adult, toddler and kids sizes. It launches globally today.
