Nike Court Force High Sakura Ueno

This upcoming Court Force High designed by the same mind who created the Sakura Ueno Air Force 1 back in 2005 is a tribulation to a variety of different events and symbols in this upcoming month of April. This month signifies the Festival of Cherry Blossom’s, which takes place in the Ueno area of Tokyo. Incidentally, Ueno also has a strong affiliation with sneaker culture as Mita among various other sneaker spots call Ueno home. The shoe itself, is highly detailed. The upper is a reflective black 3M coupled with a translucent pink sole. There is extensive lasering along the tongue featuring Cherry Blossom’s. Rounding off the features are star-shaped cuts along the collar to reveal a gold pattern underneath (much like the tearaway feature seen in McFetridge Vandals etc), the same Ueno embroidered logo as seen on the AF1’s and gold lace locks. For those proficient in Japanese, Mita has an interview with the designer, Sneaker Wolf. Image: Freshness
