While this year surely won’t see the typical gung-ho patriotism around America’s Independence Day on July 4, Nike quietly released a seven-part collection of popular footwear styles all sporting a red-white-and-blue color scheme.
Consisting of the Air Max 97, Air Max 270, Air Max 90, Air Foamposite Pro, Air Force 1 Low, React Presto and Air VaporMax Flyknit 3, all models are dressed a similar balance of colors seen on the U.S.A. flag, making the inspiration a bit obvious. Nevertheless, there are no specific callouts or nods to the country — no U.S. graphic on the insoles or no flag stitching on the tongues.
The collection is available now on Nike.com, however the Foamposite is currently sold out. Unfortunately, there’s no word on whether or not these pairs will release elsewhere, like Nike Asia.
Elsewhere, Reebok dropped its own U.S.A. pack, consisting of the Shaqnosis and Kamikaze II.
