The good news is that the celebrated Nike Air Force 1 "Linen" is coming back next month, 15 years after its debut in Nike's Co.Jp series. The bad news is that the sneaker is going to be very difficult to get.
This Air Force 1 is releasing exclusively at the new Kith Miami shop at 1931 Collins Ave, which opens its doors on Friday, Dec. 2. The shoes will be raffled off at the new store over four days during the next two weeks. And it sounds like they're one of the most limited releases this year from Nike: a social media post this week alluded to just 50 pairs releasing. The "Linen" Air Force 1 will be available in sizes 8 through 13.
The release of the shoe and the opening of the new Kith store are tied to this week's Art Basel events in Miami. Nike and Kith will bring in legendary graffiti artist Futura for a special installation during the shoe's launch.
According to Kith, the model is a one-to-one recreation of the original "Linen" Air Force 1 using a narrower shape and premium leather.
