The Nike Air Force 1 NAI KE “JADE” Is Arriving for Chinese New Year

Two AF1 models get jade and gold embellishments.

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.
