Product images of the Kith x Nike Air Force 1 — widely believed to be released to commemorate Kith’s rumored move to Japan — have surfaced online. The sneaker was first teased by Ronnie Fieg, who posted a look at the latest cover of Japanese sneaker publication Shoes Master, featuring a shot of the collaborative Air Force 1.
Fieg and Kith had previously worked on an Air Force 1 last year. That pair, however, was reserved for friends and family of the brand. The new pair, which features the brand’s box logo debossed on the side panel under the Swoosh and a mini Swoosh at the toe, is assumed to be the Japan-exclusive, general release version of that first Air Force 1.
Fieg captioned the initial Instagram post with “First cover of my favorite sneaker publication of all time. The only way to announce this one.” Particularly the last statement makes it sound like this Nike Air Force 1 will be released to the general public.
No official word yet on when or whether this sneaker will be released, so stay tuned for any updates.
