NIKE WOMEN'S AIR FORCE 1 CITY PACK

Celebrating the bold and fearless attitudes of New York, Paris, and Tokyo, Nike Sportswear has brought us the Holiday '14 Women’s City Collection. First released in 1982, the Nike Air Force 1 sneaker marked the first use of Nike Air cushioning in basketball footwear and slowly became a hit as its popularity spread from neighbourhood to neighbourhood.

From couture designers to musicians, the Nike Air Force 1 remains an underground style standard. The Tokyo Nike Air Force 1 low pulls it’s colour way from the vibrant red of the Japanese flag. An ode to the classic white on white, the New York AF1 high provides a new vision for the quintessential Air Force 1 colorway. For Paris, the high version comes bathed in a beautiful French blue. A stylized street map is stitched onto the leather upper of each shoe, calling out specific attributes of the different city’s unique layout. A subtle circle on the maps calls out prominent Nike retail locations in the respective cities. For the sock liner, a geometric all-over print pattern highlights the iconic architecture characterizing individual style capitals.
