Celebrating the opening of UNKNWN‘s new store in Miami’s Wynwood district, New York Sunshine has crafted a bespoke take on Nike‘s iconic Air Force 1 dubbed the “Install Team AF2.0.” Helmed by John Margaritis, New York Sunshine is known for its industrial-geared products, and that construction-ready ethos is apparent on this two-pack of Forces.

Arriving in white and black, each style features seven custom silver nut-and-bolt hardware pieces that are held in place above the laces by an additional raised leather eyelet. This extra piece is presented in tonal fashion on the black pair and ridged with yellow or orange trim on the white pair. Each anchor is emblazoned with a basketball graphic, another recurring theme spotted in Sunshine’s work. The special detailing doesn’t end there, as both styles also feature a custom tongue patch. The detailed wooden box pictured above is exclusive to friends & family pairs — the rest will arrive in a plain AF1 box.

The New York Sunshine x Nike Air Force 1 “Install Team AF2.0” will release exclusively at UNKNWN Wynwood during Art Basel weekend, starting on December 6. The MSRP for each pair is set at $250 USD.

In other Art Basel news, Heron Preston will lead “Authorized Counterfeit” workshops at Basic Space’s Miami pop-up.
