New York, DC, and Philly, all have an Air Force 1 created through the inspiration from their city. Today, Long Island joins the list with the release of its first ever AF1. Inspired by the icons of the Jones Beach landscape, the Air Force 1 is fashioned to reflect the rich tans and baby blues of its rugged, yet beautiful landscape.
With six miles of coastal sandy beaches and a grass landscape flanking its perimeter, the canvas upper, signifies the shore’s grainy sands with blades of grass embossed on cream colored leather. The tongue tab is marked with the silhouette of its historic lighthouse landmark, and the longitude and latitude of Jones Beach is stamped on the back tab of the shoe. Lastly, the finishing touch to the shoe includes a clear light blue outsole where the outline of the island can been seen through the grooves of the sole.
The Long Island inspired Nike Air Force 1 is available now exclusively at Street Gear in Long Island, with a wider release on July 3rd, 2009.
