Air Force Friday: Air Force 1 “Year of the Horse”
The “Year of the Horse” Air Force 1 released in 2002 in time for the Chinese New Year. To celebrate the coming of the new year, only 2,002 pairs of the shoes were released and kicked off a several year run of special Air Force 1s made to honor the Chinese New Year. Like with many traditions that started pre-2007, for some reason, when the Air Force 1 celebrated its 25th Anniversary, the traditions were set aside never to return. The shoes were dropped in Asia, but that did not get in the way of many AF1 heads of all ethnicities trying to get their hands one these shoes. Special features of the shoes include a galloping horse on the insole and Kanji characters for “horse” on the heel tab and tongue.
