Nike Sportswear head Gentry Humphrey recently showed us that there’s another ‘Year of the Dragon’ Nike Air Force 1 Low on the way with a more vibrant colorway than January’s release, which means that earlier black silken drop ends up closer to the elegant if simple 30th anniversary pairs we’ve seen from the XXX ‘Pearl’ collection. Sneaker customizer Zhijun Wang (author of the spectacular laser-etched edition) has also offered his own take on how to blend the YOTD and 30th anny themes, his new appropriately nicknamed AF1 Lows adding a bunch of golden detailing that represent the five elements and their place in Chinese lore. Have another look at these after the jump and let us know how they compare to both this year’s Chinese Zodiac kicks and the other 30th anniversary Air Force 1s we’ve seen in 2012.
This is what I expected Nike to do but they dropped some garbage instead. Nice job on the custom. Id definitely rock these.
