Aptly released in time for the 2012 presidential election, Nike pays homage to the President of the United States’ aircraft — the Air Force One — in the form of the “Presidential” Air Force 1 Hi. Based off the retired Boeing SAM 27000 plane, the sneaker boasts a completely white upper made with Nike’s innovative, thermo-molded VacTech technology. The white on the sneaker is then further accented by a contrasting black and baby-blue outsole, a stripe of navy across the ankle support-band, gold piping, and the American flag at the heel counter with the numbers “27000” slightly below. Retailing for ¥18,900 JPY (approximately $240 USD), these patriotic sneakers can be found now over at mita.
