words_Brandon Richard With the start of the 2010 World Basketball Festival just a day away, Nike is ready to launch their Air Force 1 Country Collection. The collection is made up of Air Force 1s done in colorways that represent the participating countries of the festival. Included in the group are pairs for the United States, China, Brazil, Puerto Rico and France. While the official release is scheduled for tomorrow, Nike Sportswear retailer 21 Mercer is holding an early in-store launch today. At the event, there will be World Basketball Festival ticket giveaways to the first four purchasers of each country, along with LE customization available throughout the day. Each pair will come with a special box and tissue paper available exclusively at 21 Mercer. Raffle tickets will also be given away with each purchase for a chance to win the full Country Pack and custom box kit. Additionally, a laser machine will be made available for customization.
