Hypebeast - Simple Union & Flying Hawk Studio Give the Air Force 1 a Traditional Japanese Makeover
Sneaker customizers Flying Hawk Studio have once again joined forces with Simple Union to put their own spin onto Nike‘s coveted Air Force 1 silhouette.
Dressed with a bevy of painstaking details the Nike Air Force 1 “Ukiyo-E” showcases a large red circle underneath both the medial and lateral Swoosh insignias, representing the flag of Japan. Within the Swooshes Japanese wave patterns and clouds all rendered with rich colors are featured. Each pair is unique, with art applied to each model by hand, resulting in subtle differences between the sneakers. To make the shoe slightly more low-key, the illustration-rich false tongue crafted from Japanese indigo-dyed fabrics can be removed at the wearer’s bequest.
