Little did we know at the time but the reissue of the Jones Beach Air Force 1 earlier this year was in preparation for another upcoming Long Island tribute, the Air Force 1 “Hamptons”. The Hamptons is considered to be one of the preferred destinations to party during the Summer season with it’s sandy shores and happening nightspots. To honor the hot spot which is known to attract everybody from Jason Kidd and SHAQ to Jay-Z and the Jonas Brothers, Nike’s whipped up this clean Air Force 1.
We’ve seen em before but now we’ve got a much closer look at the shoes. They feature a solid white base made up from a combo of perforated leather and premium leather throughout the upper, with the white midsole also taking on a perforated finish. A black outsole adds very little contrast but sits well, while “HAMPTONS” and the letter “H” across the tongue, and the Long Island silhouette below the icey clear outsole, add in the much needed detailing to tie these into the world famous destination.
Watch for the Nike Air Force 1 “Hamptons” to release at select Nike retailers on July 17th and follow the break for a detailed look at the shoes.
