That whole thing about the Nike Air Force 1 Low being perhaps the least imrpessive of the Nike ‘Year of the Dragon’ collection in terms of packaging — you can throw that right out the window. And taking nowthing away from the ‘AF1-XXX’ box and the dragon-emblazoned version we’ve seen, but the Air Jordan 2012 and the Zoom Kobe VII YOTD editions each come in some of the best boxes we’ve seen, maybe ever. But this special edition wooden box for the AF1 might turn out to be the nicest of them all, a dark stained beauty with intricate carved brass symbols on the lid, and not only does it come with the shoes, but also a matching Destroyer Varsity Jacket to create the kind of package that’s going to see some otherworldly resale prices. Click through to see this regal set in all its glory and stick with Sneaker News for word on when they will arrive at select Chinese Nike Sportswear retailers. via FRESHNESS
WTF I love how Nike waits until there is just enough hype, then lets out that the nice pretty packaging for anything exclusive only comes out in China! They did this on the Kobe, Lebron, Jordan and a bunch more in the past. What's up with some love in the USA Nike???
