In honor of the NBA All-Star Weekend, the Nike Sportswear 2015 All-Star Collection will release variety of styles inspired by the city’s embrace of the sport and its surrounding culture. Included in the collection is a new Nike Air Force 1, a reconstructed Nike Dunk, a new addition to the Sky Hi family, and the Nike Air Foamposite One highlights the collection. The sneakers transcend the court and have solidified status as street style icons in the Big Apple and beyond.
In honor of the weekend’s event, each silhouette incorporates five-point, four-point and single-point stars in its design. These elements pay homage, respectively, to the five boroughs of New York City, four quarters of play in a basketball game, and the single, legend-making exhibition that caps the game’s biggest celebration.
The Nike Sportswear Constellation All-Star Collection LunarWavy Sky Hi AS, Nike Dunk High CMFT PRM AS and Nike Air Force 1 Elite AS will be available at select Nike Sportswear retailers and online at nike.com/sportswear on February 11th, 2015.
The Nike Sportswear Constellation All-Star Collection Air Foamposite One AS will be available at select Nike Sportswear retailers and online at nike.com/sportswear on February 15th.
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 ELITE AS
Representing New York’s historic love of basketball and the city’s consistent innovation, the Nike Air Force 1 Elite AS exalts this classic. A window to the air unit, reminiscent of the Nike Air Max 1, appears on the lateral midsole. For the first time in Air Force 1 history, a secondary window in the outsole exposes an alternate view of its seminal cushioning technology. The outsole itself has been re-tooled to significantly reduce weight and now uses less rubber. A one-piece Phylon midsole also contributes to the weight reduction. The white/white upper featuring Vac-Tech construction highlights the star accents as they transition from the city-specific five-point star at the toe to the four-point star at the quarter, and finally finishing with the single-point diamond star at the heel.
