DORODESIGN Likes: NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW – YEAR OF THE DRAGON | SPECIAL EDITION

Having reached the midpoint of the year, Nike is set to release its follow-up to the Air Force 1 “Year of the Dragon.” 2012 is known as “the Year of the Water Dragon,” and this interpretation of a dragon rising out of the sea conveys the idea of prosperity for all. This new model gives a nod to the dragon boat concept, featuring a red suede upper with unique embossed scale texture and bright blue leather overlay, as well as celebratory gold on the Swoosh. The multi-colored knitted tongue design represents the cultural features of the Dragon Boat Festival and best wishes for safety and health. A “dragon in the clouds” emblem on the tongue tag echoes its predecessor from the spring. A translucent blue outsole finishes the look, completing the imagery of a dragon boat floating on blue waters. The Nike Force 1 Low Year of the Dragon – Special Edition will arrive at select retailers on June 23rd.

Release Date: June 23rd, 2012 (Saturday)
