Ahead of Chinese New Year, Nike taps into jade for the inspiration between two celebratory Nike Air Force 1 releases.
The "Jade" Nai Ke Air Force 1 Low is a nod to the model's 35th Anniversary, as the stone is a symbol of 35 years of marriage in Chinese culture. Premium white tumbled leather gets help from the green hue on his pair, with gold tastefully applied to the lace lock, upper eyelets and heel tab trim. Additional hits of jade are featured on the lace tips and partially translucent sole. There's a similar make-up of the Air Force 1 Up Step for women.
Expect the "Jade" Nai Ke Air Force 1 Low to release exclusively in China in mid-January, with a wider launch to follow.
