As things continue to heat up the political world leading up to this year’s presidential election, Nike too has decided to get a little bit presidential. Of course they’re not taking sides (although can you imagine how sick an elephant print/donkey hair pack would be?), instead lifting the model up to the maximum height in order to sort of metaphorically represent the high flying vessel it’s inspired by. After that the ‘Presidential’ Nike Air Force 1 High gets a flag stamped on the back end and a serial number made to again reflect a plane from the actual Air Force One fleet. Click through to check out the photos and stay tuned for release info on the Nike Air Force 1 High ‘Presidential’. Also keep in mind that Japanese power house mita is already has them in stock.

When that promising display popped up at 21 Mercer featuring the guarantee of a few more special Nike Air Force 1 releases in 2012, there was plenty of speculation to be had, with the suggestive names leading folks to dream up possibilities. The ‘Presidential’ pair seemed at first like a possible election year tie-in, but it looks as if Nike has instead swerved around that with a sort of no-brainer, taking it back to the place where the sneaker got its name in the first place. Shown here is the Nike Air Force 1 High ‘Presidential’, a rather shiny pair that gets its patriotic colorway from the real Air Force One, the air traffic control designated fleet of vehicles for the President of the United States. More specifically it’s a nod to SAM 27000, the second Boeing model created for our Commander in Chief. Click through to get the full photo and stick with Sneaker News for release info.
