Basketball craze is still riding its high in China, with the sport and its associated culture resonating with a large number of consumers in the country. Its popularity is so pervasive that Nike even introduced a Greater China-inspired iteration of its iconic Air Force 1 High silhouette back in January. An exclusive to the Chinese market, the sneaker was aptly called “Nai Ke,” alluding to the phonetic transcription of Nike’s Chinese name.

Continuing on from the “Away” release back in May, Nai Ke is returning with an alternate version featuring a recognizable white and blue color scheme on the low top silhouette. Constructed with a premium leather white upper, the shoe boasts a blue heel tab, Swoosh and outsole. This red-on-white high top became one of the most storied and rare AF1’s. Its heel tab features an embroidered “耐克(Nai Ke).”

Alongside the shoe is a collection of apparel featuring tanks, T-shirts and more. The Nike Air Force 1 Low “Nai Ke” will be available on nike.com in China and select retailers in November. Stay tuned to nike.com and @NikeSportswear Weibo for more information on the specific locations for availability and drop dates.
