The Nike Air Force 1 Upstep NAI KE "JADE" Arrives Just in Time for Chinese New Year

A luxe rework featuring jade and gold embellishments.

By //Footwear

In celebration of the upcoming Chinese New Year, Nike will be releasing two unique Air Force 1 shoes designed in a NAI KE “JADE” theme. In particular, the women’s exclusive Air Force 1 Upstep sees a clean, white base color with matching laces and Swoosh branding. To highlight the significance of jade as a symbol of good luck in Chinese culture, the new sneaker features beautiful jade embellishments on the heel, the tongue, as well as the lace lock. Finishing details include luxe gold accents applied to various parts of the shoe, as well as a slightly elevated midsole in white. See it for yourself now in the gallery above, and head over here to check out the men’s iteration.

Look out for this pair as it is set to drop officially in mid-January exclusively in China.
