A beloved callback to a Nike Air Force 1 golden era, the “West Indies” Air Force 1 Low is set to make its long-awaited return this month.
Released in 2002 as one of four pairs celebrating NYC’s West Indian Day Parade Carnival, the “West Indies” Air Force 1 is delivered again in a near-exact replication of the original. The shoe is predominantly styled in white, with classic green tastefully finding a home on the tongue and heel tabs, lining, and outsole. West Indies is marked on the dubraes, heel, and tongue, the latter altered just a bit to reflect that the shoe is not celebrating its own 20th Anniversary, but the model’s 40th Anniversary as well.
Priced at $150, the “West Indies” Air Force 1 will be released via the SNKRS app on Aug. 26.
UPDATE (04/02): The “West Indies” Nike Air Force 1 has now surfaced in the yellow variation. Keep an eye on our sneaker release dates for official update in the months ahead.
UPDATE (08/12): Nike has confirmed on SNKRS that the yellow-based “West Indies” Air Force 1 Low will be released via the app on Aug. 25 for $140.
