NikeLab has joined forces with Japanese fleece specialist Loopwheeler to create a special-edition Air Force 1 Ultraforce and Sock Dart, both featuring textile uppers made with loop wheel knitting machines. Moreover, the material is finished in hand-dyed indigo, requiring an inventive process that uses two layers of fabric, one featuring dark indigo-dyed cotton on the toe and midsole of the Air Force 1, and on the toe and vamp of the Sock Dart. The other is indigo-dyed heathered white cotton, seen on the quarter panel of the Air Force 1 and the heel and tongue of the Sock Dart. Both pairs are lined with heathered cotton for softness. Rounding out the details are a debossed Loopwheeler logo on the tongue loops of the Air Force 1 and Sock Dart. Both come with a cotton drawstring bag printed with Loopwheeler and Nike logos. 

Look for the kicks to be available July 16th at and NikeLab MA5 in Tokyo, and Loopwheeler stores in Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka.
