NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW WEEK

With 2012 being the 30th Anniversary of the Nike Air Force 1, how could we skip out on giving shine to some of the all-time greatest Air Force 1 Lows of all-time via Classics Revisited? Nike Sportswear hasn’t disappointed this year thus far, with a slew of AF1-XXX releases that’ll surely be the focus of ‘revisitations’ a few years from now, but we’ll devote this week to some of the most memorably Forces in history. To kick things off with a bang, we’ll begin with one of the most coveted and tough-to-get Air Force 1s ever created – the Promo/Friends-&-Family ‘Playstation’. These were handed out to select Sony employees in celebration of the much-anticipated release of the third installment of the flagship enterprise known as the Sony Playstation; the shoes were given out throughout the year leading up to the release of the Sony Playstation 3, which hit stores on November 11, 2006 in a historic Holiday-shopping slugfest against the Nintendo Wii and XBOX 360.

The Air Force 1 Low ‘Playstation’ was designed with the console in mind; it featured the shiny piano black patent leather toe with a blue-to-white gradient on the heel. The classic Sony Playstation logo is embroidered on the heel, but what makes each and every pair stand out is the individual numberings. That’s right – each of the 150 pairs created have its own ‘serial number’ of sorts. Each of the pairs were given to hand-selected recipients, but perhaps the most notable of that group is Kobe Bryant – coverboy of the Sony-exclusive “NBA” video game franchise. Of course, the value of the Air Force 1 ‘Playstation’ can’t be concretely determined, but expect to shell out a couple thousands for one of the 150 pairs in existence. More of the Air Force 1 Low ‘Playstation’ below, so take a look and check back tomorrow for another classic Air Force 1 Low spotlight!
