This ‘Emotionally Unavailable’ Nike Sneaker Is Perfect For Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s Day just two weeks away, Nike is eager to celebrate with its latest project dropping just in time for the sweet holiday.

The sportswear giant collaborated on the new Nike Air Force 1 High with Edison Chen, the founder of popular apparel brand CLOT and contemporary fashion label Emotionally Unavailable, its initials emblazoned on the shoes.

Chen first hinted at the upcoming project last week with a cryptic image on Instagram. The teaser showed the never-before-seen AF1 featuring an “E.U./Air” on the tongue with the caption reading, “HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY,” which alluded to a release around the time of the holiday.

With Feb. 14 approaching, notorious sneaker leaker @py_rates shared an official look at the kicks on Twitter. Opting for the high-top version of the classic basketball sneaker, the upper features an all-red canvas upper, offset by hot pink Chenille Swoosh branding with white bordering on the lateral and medial sides. Unlike the traditional criss-cross lacing system, this version will incorporate a utilitarian zipper down the middle of the tongue with the “E.U./Air” logo also appearing on the mid-foot strap.

While Nike has yet to officially announce the release of the shoe, expect it to launch on Nike.com and at select Nike retailers soon.
