NIKELAB released indigo-dyed AIR FORCE 1, collaborated with Loopwheeler, well known for its durable cotton sweatshirts with hanging knitting machines, which currently exist only in Japan.
The shoe is based on a new NikeLab AIR FORCE 1 Ultraforce and Sock Dart, which saved lots of weights compared to standard AIR FORCE 1.
Both shoes also have a debossed Loopwheeler logo on the tongue loops of the Air Force 1 and Sock Dart and come with a cotton drawstring bag printed with Loopwheeler and Nike logos.
I don’t know if it is appropriate to call Japanese traditional color, Japan Blue, but probably I feel that this is a color that was built in our DNA from ancient. Is not it blue that is representative of Japan? I am pleased if it becomes a pair that will be a pleasant memory for everyone. Your feet will color stain with blue but I hope you love them!
