It's that time of year again when New York City celebrates West Indies culture with a parade down Brooklyn Eastern Parkway, much like the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade Nike honors their respective cultures with their signature shoe. For the West Indies, that shoe is an Air Force 1. This year is an extra unique design as the annual release celebrates two historic milestones. Twenty years since the first West Indies Air Force 1 release and the 40th anniversary of the Air Force 1 itself calls for a particular release
The Nike Air Force 1 "West Indies" Anniversary Edition throws it back to the first of the collection with a near-exact representation of the original design. The shoe is predominantly dressed in white but uses university gold on the sockliner and outsole. Trademark West Indies logos on the outer heel and tongue and branded dubraes pay homage to the shoe's roots.
The Air Force 1 "West Indies" Anniversary Edition is loaded up for an August 26th release on the SNKRS App for $150. Keep an eye out for more sneaker release news by following us on Twitter and Instagram.
