A few days back, we gave you a look at the newest Nike 1World Air Force 1 model to hand over the reigns to a professional athlete. International soccer superstar, Rio Ferdinand, not only holds down the center back position for legendary football club, Manchester United, as well as for the English National Team, but now he has his own premium Air Force 1 shoe to add to his impressive resume. The shoe uses a super-clean white upper with a combination of smooth leather and alligator skin providing the shoe’s foundation. Minimal accents come by way of a University Blue tongue label and Metallic Gold on the Swoosh and Ferdinand’s number 5 logos on the heels.
Completing the white on white color scheme is a transparent white midsole and outsole that gives off a crisp milky look that allows the heel Air bubble unit to show through. A final personal touch is a quote by Rio Ferdinand printed on the insole that reads “IF… I got to play just 1 minute of professional football, I would die a happy man.” These dropped in very limited quantities last weekend, so for now, eBay is your best hope. Check out some more pics and the latest eBay listings after the jump. Via Freshness.
Color: White/Metallic Gold-University Blue
