Nike SB has just released the “West Coast” sneaker from the “Rivals” pack, inspired by a Tupac outfit from an old photograph. The Nike Air Force 2 Low is constructed in dark blue denim with gold stitching, and has a paisley pattern on the heel and inner-lining. The white midsole and gum outsole help to convey the 90s inspiration. Even though these sneakers have no affiliation with the estates of either rappers, there is a Notorious B.I.G-inspired, “East Coast” variant expected to follow. This sneaker is now available at Nike retailers including CCS, and will cost $95 USD.
