Original Story (03/12/21): Nike is releasing an Air Force 1 Experimental that takes inspiration from the United States Postal Service. The irony lies in the fact that Nike’s official shipping partner is UPS.
Similar to the USPS “Priority Mail” shipping box, the shoe is dressed in a white color palette with blue and red details. The upper has blue “Air Force 1” stamps throughout its full construction, underneath an interesting foam shell, while an actual shipping label motif on the heel reflects the red, white and blue USPS one. Instead it has “Air Force 1,” “N.354” and “For Everyday Use” and the Nike logo replacing what you’d normally see. The Swoosh is accompanied by a red N.354 text and shades of blue don the lace toggles, foam tongue, heel graphics, collar, heel tabs and outsole.
The Nike Air Force 1 Experimental “USPS” will likely release in the upcoming weeks via Nike.com and select retailers. Catch it selling retail for $130 and expect a UPS delivery.
Update (05/22/21): USPS has squashed its beef with Nike, allowing the Swoosh to release this Air Force 1 Experimental, officially called the “Postal Ghost.” Catch the drop on May 28th via SNKRS and select retailers.
