Nike Air Force 1 (GS) “4th of July” Edition

This Sunday is Independence Day aka 4th of July, so as usual, Nike acknowledges the holiday by releasing 4th of July themed footwear. Today we offer you a first look at the Independence Day Air Force 1. These sneakers scream U-S-A with the traditional red, white, and blue color scheme. Besides the USA colorway, the most notable feature is the USA flag hologram seen on the heel tab.

Fellas, don’t these remind you of the promo All-Star AF1’s that Nike released a few years ago? However, this particular Air Force 1 was only made in kids sizes, which means ladies can participate in this release. Perhaps the kiddies and ladies can rock these to the 4th of July cookouts on Sunday. The shoes are officially set to launch this Saturday, July 3rd at Nike accounts.
