For those outside of New York City, Jones Beach may not strike an internal chord. But for those in the boroughs and more importantly from Long Island, the Jones Beach Nike Air Force 1 is more than just a special colorway or a sneaker. Last year the Jones Beach AF1 saw a Quickstrike release and sold out immediately, and a year later, a wider release is in the books. This Saturday, June 5th, Sneaker Bistro of Patchogue, NY will hold a special release event for this sentimental shoe, with a special guest appearance by Mayor (to say he’s fond of Forces is an understatement) and Long Island native artist Reme, who will perform a live painting of the Jones Beach AF1 shoe. In typical Jones Beach fashion, a BBQ will be held for those in attendance. SB will be selling these for box price, $100 Adults, $85 Kids.
