Just the other day we caught a look at the Nike Air Force 1 “WBF” France which is part of an upcoming pack honoring of Air Force 1’s honoring the country’s attending the World Basketball Festival in NYC and competing in the forthcoming FIBA Championship.
Along with France the national basketball team from Puerto Rico will also hit the streets of New York, running drills and scrimmages on some of the most famous courts around the city. So it’s only right they get their own Air Force 1 too. The shoes feature just what you would expect from a Puerto Rico themed sneaker. The leather upper takes on a shade of Red with White visible on the Swoosh, heel tab and mid-sole. The color blocking lacks any hits of Blue, the third color in the Puerto Rican flag, but Nike makes up for the fact with the flag be used as a tongue tag. And, although not visible in the picture, it’s evident that the translucent outsole consists of the same WBF-like graphics beneath it that we saw used on the France version.
No official release dates have been confirmed at this time but it’s been mentioned that the the Air Force 1 “WBF” France is slated to release on August 8th, 2010 through House of Hoops retailers. If indeed true, chances are these are scheduled for the same day. Via: esco777
