NIKE’s CHINESE NEW YEAR AIR FORCE 1 “JADE” COLLECTION

NIKE's CHINESE NEW YEAR AIR FORCE 1 “JADE” COLLECTION

Nike Sportswear is ready to celebrate Chinese New Year with two distinct styles of the Air Force 1 that tie in Jade stone elements. Jade is a one-of-a-kind stone with a signature green hue that traditionally signifies the 35th Anniversary of marriage. It also represents power and wealth, with the stone itself being a symbol of status. 2017 is, of course, the 35th Anniversary of the birth of the Air Force 1, so the reference to the green stone seems only natural. The Nike Air Force 1 Low Ultra Nai Ke and the Air Force 1 Upstep for women feature jade green heel-tabs and gold trim on the tongue and lace dubrae. Additionally, the men’s version makes use of jade green sections on the sole, while the women’s Upstep model opts for an opaque sole. Both pairs will release later this month exclusively in Asia, with a global release to follow at a later date.
