If you’re a fan of the Nike Air Force 1, the last week or so should’ve been pure heaven. In the Air Force 1 5 Boroughs Pack, we saw a set of five great colorways inspired by the 5 boroughs of New York City but this next pack takes it out of the local scene and appeals to the world stage. Check out the upcoming China and Puerto Rico colorways of the Nike Air Force 1 World Basketball Festival Pack; China and Puerto Rico will participate in the first-of-its-kind World Basketball Festival in mid-August and to give props to the five participating countries – U.S.A., Brasil, France, and the two aforementioned – Nike will release a special set of the Nike Air Force 1 in country-specific colorways and special tongue labels. A first look at the Puerto Rico colorway reveals a red leather upper with a flag-inspired graphic while the China features a yellow upper with a tongue label also designed with the national flag in mind. If you remember the the 2006 Air Force 1 World Cup Pack (all done in patent leather), you’ll be quick the realize that country-inspired AF1s fly off the shelves, so do not sleep on these! A tentative price of $125 has been set so stick with Sneaker News and we’ll keep you updated with more info regarding the Air Force 1 WBF Pack. via NT.
