The Nike Air Force 1 High "Naike" is Nike Sportswear's first real step towards the "remastering" process that's been so highly touted by Jordan Brand.

For what it's worth, the shoe has already been given the thumbs up by a handful of Chinese sneakerheads who helped preview the model earlier in the week. Further showing off their shape is this new set of images that should give longtime fans of the silhouette a better idea of what to expect in terms of shape. The model ends up slightly slimmer than modern Air Force 1 High builds, which should help those that feel challenged by its overall bulk. Also helpful here are the more detailed shots that show off the quality of leather used. The Nike Air Force 1 High "Naike" looks to be China-exclusive, and will release on Jan. 15, 2015.
