Following up on our recent coverage of this year’s 2011 Year of the Rabbit Air Force 1 Supreme comes a more in-depth look into the commemorative sneaker. A look at the exclusive packaging links some of the design executions with the inspirations for the sneaker. Together with an interesting material contrast, candy shaped packaging and printed packaging paper makes for one of the more memorable Year of the… releases over the course of the sneaker’s last few releases.
