Along with the League of Legends: Wild Rift announcement, Riot Games has rewarded select Southeast Asian partners with some customs. Employing custom studio SBTG to help with this project was a great showing of intuition, given the Singaporean’s previous works. Using the iconic Nike Air Force 1 as a base, Mr. Sabotage (a.k.a. Mark Ong) made a few choice elevations.
Like the Kobe Tribute Mamba Fury AF1, the Wild Rift AF1’s feature embroidered swooshes and gold detailing on the heel. This time we see SBTG’s recognizable tiger camo adorn the swoosh dripping in Blue, Gold & White – the game’s colors. The standard tongue tags & lace dubraes have also been swapped out for a more on-brand look. The tastefully modified uppers sit above untouched Air Force soles completing the look.
The pairs will not see a retail release, instead being gifted to a select few in the Riot Games arsenal. For each member that is gifted a pair, their respective names are stenciled in gold foil for a luxe touch. We’re sure that many sneakerheads & gamers alike would be rushing for a pair if these weren’t a promotional project.
Let us know what you think about the pairs and the game, with images of the shoes viewable below. As always, keep it locked into Nice Kicks for all of the latest info and drops!
