Earlier this month, Nike unveiled an Air Force 1 Ultraforce and Sock Dart made in collaboration with fleece specialist Loopwheeler. Both featured uppers treated with hand-dyed indigo, a motif that's repeated with the unveiling of the Air Force 1 Low Aizome. Made in Japan, the shoe has a hand-dyed indigo textile upper featuring Sashiko embroidery, a textured pattern that increases durability by reinforcing points of wear. Tan leather on the eyestay, tongue, Swoosh and heel tab complete the look. 

This Nike Air Force 1 Low Aizome will be exclusive to Japan. It launches July 29th at BEAMS Japan, BEAMS Harajuku, NikeLab MA5 and Nike Harajuku. 

Release Date: 7/29/17 (Saturday)
