Rio Ferdinand x Nike 1World Air Force 1


Those of you who are avid soccer - or as it is called across the pond “football” - fans are well acquainted with the name Rio Ferdinand. Currently playing as the starting centre back on Manchester United, Rio is in the upper echelon of international soccer. To mark his success, Nike Sportswear has decided to include one of their star athletes in their 1World program.
Using a premium Air Force 1 Low as a base, the 1World x Rio Ferdinand comes in a clean white colorway accented by dope colors, details and textures. Adorning the Swoosh and heel embroidery is metallic gold while the mid-panel, toe-box and heel-tab are all embossed with a clean alligator pattern. To put icing on the cake of this design is an icy mid-sole and out-sole revealing a some-what visible air bubble and to make the shoe truly unique ” ‘IF’ I got just 1 minute to play professional football I would die a happy man,” is printed on the insole. These just released at Nike Sportswear at 21 Mercer street.
