Remember earlier this year when Nike released the Naike Air Force 1, a China exclusive, that strived to recreate the original build of the heralded model?
There's another colorway of the shoe coming. The red and white palette is the same, but the distribution of the colors is more or less flipped across the upper. The heel badge again features the embroidery that translates to "Naike" as a nod to the Chinese writing of the brand's name. Nike hasn't officially labeled this build as "remastered" like it has with the Air Jordan line, but the approach is similar.
What's interesting here is that the shop touting this pair, Culture Kings, is in Australia, which means that a release beyond China might be coming for this pair.
