It Looks Like the PlayStation x Nike Air Force 1 is Getting a Wider Release
Rebooting a classic.
One of the most sought after Air Force 1s of all time, the “Playstation” Air Force 1 low has always held it’s hype. Perhaps because both gamers and sneakerheads are do deeply involved in their subcultures, it makes the sneaker more personal than any other release has done before.
The sneaker’s release in 2006—the same year the Sony the Playstation 3 hot shelves—reeked havoc, as they were only available in a numbered run of 150. What made them even hotter was that fact these were only given out to Sony employees, some sweepstakes winners, and the legendary Kobe Bryant, who was the cover athlete for the PS3 exclusive-come-flop, NBA 07: The Life Vol 2.
When Nike dropped and even more limited run of 50 pairs three years later in 2009. the cult status of the sneaker only grew, again stained with disappointment, as the general population were snubbed in favor of Sony executives and charity auctions.
The second-edition “PlayStation” Air Force 1 released last June in Los Angeles, exclusively to E3 attendees via SNKRS Stash. Again, super limited in nature left all of us gamers dejected. But with official images surfacing again on Nike servers today, could we finally be seeing a wider release?
