Despite being a serious business, NIKE, Inc. has never shied away from having fun. From cheeky ads to playful concepts, the Swoosh’s products have benefitted from a not-so-serious attitude. Recently the brand’s happy-go-lucky side produced a kid’s Nike Air Force 1 Low featuring a “Finding Nemo”-like clownfish graphic on the heel.
While not an official collaboration, the unreleased shoe immediately evokes the beloved figure from Pixar’s hit film from 2003. The bulk of the pair’s upper indulges in a white and orange color scheme, with the latter featuring wave-like shapes around the rear. A smiling clownfish replaces traditional Nike branding on the spine; an underwater scene appears on the top of the tongue.
Underfoot, the Preschool Air Force 1 keeps things simple with its midsole. Outsoles, however, abandon their standard construction in favor of Nike Grind material. As part of the brand’s commitment to sustainability, manufacturing floor scraps are upcycled to produce Grind, a compound that’s durable and good for the environment.
Enjoy official images of the pair ahead. No firm nike.com release date is known as of this writing, but stay tuned for updates as PS and TD sizes are confirmed.
