Nike once again will celebrate the Mexican holiday, Dia de Los Muertos. The Nike Air Force 1 “Day of the Dead” features themed colors and 3M graphics all throughout for a very special edition.
Dia de Los Muertos has grown into a holiday not only celebrated in Mexico but also the States as well. The Holiday although lands on Halloween is not be confused with the spooky holiday. The annual festivities represent the good in death and celebrates family, traditions and also the human life cycle of death. Although centered around death, it’s not the gory or spooky side of death they celebrate rather the love and respect for the dead are celebrated. The holiday will last from October 31st to November 2nd this year and Nike looks to join in on the festivities with a themed Air Force 1.
The Nike Air Force 1 “Day of the Dead” takes on a smooth white leather all throughout but also fins inspiration from the Holiday’s vibrant array of colors. Blue, green, pink and yellow all grace the piping around the midfoot paneling and toe box to add a subtle yet splash of color to the silhouette. If you look closely, a tonal skull graphic is placed throughout the paneling that lights up when exposed to light due to 3M technology for a very pleasant surprise. A themed insole finishes off the great design.
