Nike is paying homage to New York City‘s bodegas — small convenience stores that are the lifeblood of neighborhoods from Harlem to Bushwick and Astoria — with two new Air Force 1s dubbed “Pink Bag” and “White Bag.” Drawing inspiration from the reusable shopping bags found in bodegas until the recent city-wide plastic bag ban curtailed their numbers, both pairs are a homage to urban life and the businesses that make the Big Apple unique.

As their names suggest, the “Pink Bag” features a soft pink leather upper while the “White Bag” opts for a crisp white leather upper. Each top half is entirely monochromatic in style, save for the tongue tag which serves a repeating red Nike Sportswear graphic for a tweaked take on a familiar bag graphic. Though the tongue tag offers a mark that’s familiar to any city dweller, the white midsole supplies each shoe’s signature flourish by adding a rose graphic around the lateral side’s Air branding.

On the “Pink Bag,” this embellishment is done up entirely in red. On the “White Bag,” the red rose is accentuated by a green stem and leaf. Final hits of detail are supplied by Swooshed smiley faces and “Have a Nike Day” text hits on the insoles plus embroidered Nike graphics on the heel. Classic white outsoles complete the look.

The Nike Air Force 1 “Pink Bag” and “White Bag” are both set to release via Nike SNKRS Japan come February 24. The MSRP for each is set at a tax-included ¥13,200 JPY (approximately $125 USD).
