A preview of the Jay-Z x Nike Sportswear Air Force 1 WBF “All Black Everything” popped up a few days ago and people had mixed feeling about it. Today we have a few more details about the shoe and the purpose of the exclusivity.
Each of the 5 models are based on one of 5 WBF countries, France, USA, China, Puerto Rico or Brazil. Only two versions of each sneaker will be made, one will be auctioned off to benefit the Shawn Carter Scholarship, and the other will go to Jay-Z. Not having a lot of color choices to play with, Nike and Jay-Z decided that material choices would separate the countries and decided on textured leather for the US, a premium leather for France, patent leather for Brazil, pony hair for China, and perforated leather for Puerto Rico. If either of these happen to tempt you a little bit, head over to eBay and get to bidding.
