Nike originally debuted the now-iconic Air Force 1 in 1982, and though it was designed as a basketball shoe, the AF1s quickly went on to obtain something of a cult status amongst streetwear enthusiasts, ultimately giving way to hundreds of regular and limited edition material and colorway variants. The latest of which is the new Air Force 1 Experimental Postal Ghost, which sees the popular low-tops bestowed with a visual theme inspired by the United States Postal Service’s Priority Mail shipping box.
Created by the activewear brand’s experimental N.354 sub-label, the Postal Ghost was born out of an official partnership between USPS and Nike and features off-white uppers that have been given a unique textured vacuum-sealed treatment. Both the interior and exterior of the sneaker are adorned in special AF1 and USPS branding, including a shipping label-style graphic across the heel. Other details include a “Nike Air” heel-collar graphic that’s been flipped upside-down, white laces decorated with a blue toggle system, and off-blue pull tabs with matching exposed tongue foam. Priced at $130, the USPS x Nike Air Force 1 Experimental Postal Ghost is scheduled for release on July 14, 2021.
