Nike get set to celebrate the World Basketball Festival – which returns to the Windy City of Chicago this month – by releasing this special edition of their Lunar Force 1. It's a fitting ode to the festivities too, the entire sneak comes shrouded in basketball texture leather and features the space age Lunarlon sole down under, lined with a unique light to dark blue faded icy outsole. To complete the package Nike slapped each shoe with embroidered basketball logos on the heels. Thumbs up here, not for everyone, but certainly a little left of centre. Find them at Nike Sportswear retailers globally beginning Thursday August 14th.
