Chien-Ming Wang x Nike Sportswear Air Max 1 Premium

chien-ming-wang-nike-sportswear-air-max-1

An integral part of the New York Yankee’s starting bull-pen, pitcher Chien-Ming Wang had the honor of pitching from the mound at Yankee stadium’s inaugural game. As the pride of Taiwan and a popular Taiwanese figure, Wang was given the opportunity to create and customize his very own Air Max 1 Premium. The result doesn’t stray far from his baseball roots as he combines premium leathers with a symbolic baseball stitching in gold. Subtle and understated hints to his place with the Yankees can be seen via navy #40 embroidery. Rounding out the design are a silhouette of Wang lasered into the tongue and a translucent gold outsole. The shoe will launch on Friday, July 10th at select retailers of Nike in Taiwan with a global release soon after.
