This Nike Air Force 1 Mid Tributes Japan’s Izakaya Culture

Nike Sportswear will relive its chronology with this special edition Air Force 1 Mid to commemorate its 40th anniversary.

The Nike Air Force 1 Mid in Cream textile canvas with Tan leather overlays and Black leather Swooshes sits on a Sail midsole and Tan rubber outsole. The detachable chronological receipt on the mouths highlights each design from the inception until the present. Other interesting aspects include an embroidered Star/Swoosh symbol at the left shoe’s lateral ankle and a humorous beaver depiction on the insoles – a likely homage to Beaverton, OR, where the shoes were developed, and Vietnam, where the shoes were produced. The cork substance used in the back is one of the finishing touches.

Check out the official images below, and watch for the Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Izakaya” to hit select Japanese shops and Nike.com on August 25th.
