While Paris and the AccorHotel Arena are preparing to host in February and for the first time in history an NBA regular season game, which will pit the Milwaukee Bucks against the Charlotte Hornets, Nike does not fail to mark the event with a pair of dedicated Air Force 1 “NBA Paris Game”.
Nike unveils a pair of Air Force 1 “NBA Paris Game” for the NBA game on January 24 at the AccorHotel Arena in Paris Bercy
The basketball event of the year organized by beIN Sport therefore also has the right to its pair of official sneakers. While Nike has already presented a series of NBA Paris Game branded textile items, the swoosh brand is adding the icing on the cake by unveiling a special pair of Air Force 1s. Dressed in the iconic smooth white leather, it is embellished with blue and red elements in reference to the French flag, a basketball country and a regular supplier of great players to the American League..
A limited drop to celebrate the first NBA Paris Game to be held in the French capital
With its usual tone-on-tone comma, the Air Force 1 NBA Paris Game pair is branded with the name of the French capital with a hot iron, underlined with “National Basketball Association” on the side of the heel. We find the Air inscription on the midsole between two blue and red lines. The back of the heel is also personalized and features the names NBA and Paris in red on a white background with blue stars. The usual label of the model is here embroidered in blue and accompanied by a black NBA patch on the side of the tongue. Finally, the insoles are not left out and are marked with the name of the French capital and the national basketball association on one and the number 20 on the other, in reference to the year 2020. One small blue Nike logo contrasts with the immaculate white at the base of the laces.
A pair that pays tribute to French basketball
This Air Force 1 NBA Paris Game ’07 model should be marketed in the coming days on the French site of Nike for 110 euros, while the NBA game in question will take place on January 24..
