Nike China is releasing another limited edition sneaker for the upcoming Chinese New Year. This year, the celebratory shoe will take the form of two Nike Air Force 1 models in a NAI KE “JADE” theme. The first model is the Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Low QS, which is a refined version of the original design that features a sleek all-white upper visited by hits of Jade green on the heel tab, tongue branding patch, lace aglets and outsole. Gold details symbolize good fortune, while an Air-sole unit provides ultra lightweight cushioning. The second model is women’s Nike Air Force 1 Upstep, which features a textured upper and slightly higher midsole for height and comfort.
In Chinese culture, jade symbolizes nobility and virtue and is often associated with 35th anniversaries, thus a fitting choice for the Air Force 1′s 35th birthday this year. The Nike Air Force 1 NAI KE “Jade” sneakers will be released in mid-January exclusively in China. Take a look at the Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Low QS NAI KE “JADE” above and head over here for the women’s version.
