The Nike Air Force 1 “West Indies” first debuted in 2002 in honor of the West Indian Day Parade Carnival. The festival is held annually on the first Monday in September, as people dance around the Crown Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. After 20 years from its initial release, the Nike Air Force 1 “West Indies” is finally returning.
Throughout the early 2000’s there were four different colorways of this Nike Air Force 1, but the upcoming iteration honors the OG. The upper has a white leather base with green accents on the outsole, sockliner, tongue tag, and heel tab. The standout feature here is the West Indies embroidery on the heel counter, which has red and green front with a small yellow palm tree. West Indies branding also appears on the tongue tag and lace dubrae. Yellow Nike Air embroidery on the back of the heel tab completes the design. This sneaker is undoubtedly a memorable moment in Nike history and its return helps the brand to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Air Force 1.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low “West Indies” is expected to release this upcoming September. The retail price is set at $140. To purchase, visit Nike.com and select retailers. For more sneaker news and release dates, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
