Yi Jian Lian x Nike Air Force 1 Supreme – Scorpion (Gucci)

Nike Air Force 1 Yjl6

Another Air Force 1 collaboration between Nike and an Asian sports star has surfaced and this time it’s with Milwaukee Bucks standout rookie, Yi Jian Lian. We’ve already shown you some of Yi’s PE’s, such as the Hyperdunk for the Olympics. This Air Force 1 we’re told Yi actually worked on and offered his insight and dictated some of what he wanted to be placed on the shoe. Yi is a huge Gucci fanatic, hence the Gucci-esque colors, monogram, and shoelaces. The monogram instead of being G’s is actually scorpions, Yi’s nickname when he played in China. The shoe laces are an obvious Gucci take off, and we’ve even seen it before from Starks Laces. The Yi logo on the heel is something Nike created for Yi, and we will be seeing much more of it in the future as Nike plans to release a number of apparel products with the Yi’s branding on it. Unfortunately for those of you who are looking to score a pair you’ll have locate the nearest Nike Tier 0 account in Asia, such as Phantaci in Taiwan. via Kenlu
