NikeLab has hit us with an Air Force 1 teaser, showing a white midsole with the signature AIR and piping done up in a graffiti type font. They added one more clue by tweeting, “uptown is calling”. Given the type font and uptown reference there is a very good chance these are a collab with an NYC area graffiti artist. The good folks over at Sneaker News have put their money on Eric Haze as the collaborator, and they may very well be onto something, as the arrow on the midsole is remarkably similar to the arrow Haze often puts under his signature. Haze has also worked with Nike on multiple projects including designing the 21 Mercer shop for the 2012 Olympics. Check out the full teaser below, and let us know what you think these are going to be!
