Kick started by the now back-to-back NBA MVP winner Giannis Antetokounmpo back in July, the “Naija” sneaker theme has since navigated its way towards other silhouettes under the Swoosh umbrella including the Nike Presto and Air Max 95. Now, the Nigerian influence is being brought to the table once more to outfit another modern-day Sportswear silhouette in the Air Force 1 React.
Falling against its solid black background, vibrant accents of “Pine Green” and “Green Strike” attract all of the attention as they are evenly distributed among the shoe’s intricate patterns. The former coat the tile-like graphics, repetitive triangle patterns across the forefoot tongues and heel banners, while the latter is applied to the the swirly lines present across the throat overlays and heel panels that host the “Nike Air” text. Furthermore, the shoe’s nickname arrives spelled out on the medial side’s heels, and the outsoles divvy up into three sections with the aforementioned green accents; the “Green Strike” of which sandwich the darker hue. A gallery of images can be found here ahead, and you can expect these to drop via Nike.com on October 1st.
