Nike’s global 1World initiative seeks to pair up some of the world’s most inventive artists and athletes with timeless Beaverton silhouettes. New Jersey Nets big man Yi Jianlian recently got his time to shine, designing his own Nike Air Force One (1). The lowtop’s beige upper is cleverly separated into woven and faux-crocodile premium leather parts and offset by a chocolate outsole. Jianlian’s flaming “Yi” logo resides on the heel tab. Unfortunately, it’s likely that these scorchers won’t reach US retail soil anytime soon; they’re slated to release on May 17 in China.
