FN Pick: Dragon Trainers

FN Pick: Dragon Trainers
Nike launches a special-edition Air Force 1 to commemorate both the 30th anniversary of the classic sneakers and the Year of the Dragon on the Chinese calendar.

There’s being on fire and then there’s fire-breathing dragons. Nike, the company that created huge buzz last week with its Kanye kicks, has sneakerheads vying for another shoe that hits June 23. The company will launch a special-edition Air Force 1 to commemorate both the 30th anniversary of the classic sneakers and the Year of the Dragon on the Chinese calendar. The style takes cues from the watercraft at the Dragon Boat Festival (taking place across China on Saturday) and dragon iconography, shown in details on the uppers and on the multicolored knitted tongue.
