Footwear customizer Flying Hawk Studio works in collaboration with Simple Union to create a new iteration of the iconic Air Force 1 sneakers. The main inspiration behind the new graphic designs turn its attention to Japanese themes, with the new iteration boasting the name 'Ukiyo-E.'
The Swoosh accent on the medial and the lateral side feature large red circle recalling the country's flag. The Swooshes are also accented with wave designs and clouds that are boldly colored. Every pair of sneakers are decorated by hand, making every pair unique to its own with its small and subtle differences. Additional details include the rich illustrations on the tongue informed with Japanese indigo-dyed fabrication that give the wearers the option to remove.
