Nike’s use of references is blatant to say the least. And despite often going beyond a simple inspiration, the brand has rarely gotten into a trouble — that was, however, until the unveil of their USPS-themed Air Force 1 Experimental.
Dubbed “Postal Ghost,” the pair is a near exact mirror to the Priority Mail slip and box. This is what caused the controversy initially, as the USPS received no response from Nike following attempts at reconciliation. Today, thanks likely to the response from the media, the two have finally struck a deal and the colorway is now an officially licensed partnership.
Set to release at the end of the month, the design harks to the aforementioned with the same red, white, and blue palette. The vacuum seal inspired upper hues the very same off shade of white as the boxes themselves, better complementing the label-inspired overlay along the counter. Cool and warm toned accents then dress atop — the toggle fastener, internal and external branding, etc. — while lighter greys outfit the tread as well as the tongue/lining.
For a closer look, check out the official images below. A release is due to hit Nike SNKRS on July 14th for a retail of $130 USD.
This Nike Air Force 1 Experimental has been delayed to July 14th from May 28th.
