Nike and NBA‘s “City Edition” collection pays homage to the die-hard fans of each team and hometown heritage. Having already released “City Edition” uniform jerseys, Nike now gives its iconic Air Force 1 sneaker the thematic treatment via NIKEiD.
The footwear collection currently boasts ten colorways honoring the Houston Rockets, Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat (not pictured), New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder (not pictured), San Antonio Spurs, Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors.
Some special accents include the Rockets’s Chinese character tongue overlay to honor Houston’s rich Asian heritage, the Bulls’ star embroidery on the heel in reference to Chicago’s flag, the Warriors’ Chinese dragon logo also found on the “City Edition” uniforms, and the Celtics’ green heel tab that features all of the team’s championship years.
Flip through Nike’s NBA “City Edition” Air Force 1 colorways above and head over to the Nike+ app to pick up a pair for $150 USD. Also check out the star-accented Nike Air Force 1 High for another classic sneaker with a twist.
