An older Acronym x Nike sample has resurfaced, suggesting that a retail release is on the way. The Acronym x Nike Air Force 1 High Downtown SP, a shoe that's been floating around in sample form for some time now, was spotted again this week on the Instagram of Nike collaborator ASAP Bari.

After that, Acronym co-founder Errolson Hugh posted illustrations of three colorways of the sneaker on his Instagram account. While he didn't confirm that a release is coming soon, he did hint at that possibility in the comments section of this photo. What's more, there are now rumors circulating of a Feb. 9 release date for the Acronym x Nike Air Force 1 High Downtown SPs.

A handful of these Acronym x Nike styles have been available on eBay for a while now.

Acronym worked with Nike on Air Force 1s before, creating a polarizing duo of Lunar Force 1s with zippers attached.
