Before Nike Basketball became what it is today with signature silhouettes from elite players such as LeBron, Kyrie, KD etc., the lineage was mainly spotlighted for silhouettes we now more so look towards as street style options. This includes models such as the Air Force 1, Blazer Mid, and the Sky Force, all of which were birthed during the ’80s era. And the latter is now being pushed back to the frontlines for the Swoosh’s forthcoming “Embedded” capsule, a two-piece pack dedicated to throwback hoops culture from Coney Island, New York.

Presented in near-identical fashion to its Blazer release sibling, this Sky Force 3/4 colorway effectively pairs together “Grey Fog” that constitute its suede upper and soles along with “Photo Blue” accents that outfit the Swooshes and tongue/heel branding. Themed energy is executed through ball-shaped logos infused into the tongues and fastened to the lower throat in the form of dubraes, as well as throughout the footbeds which print out a transportation map of the NYC-located neighborhood. If interested in adding these to your rotation, you can find them dropping on Nike.com come August 27th for a wallet-friendly $85.

For news related to a modernized NY-themed hoop shoe, the KD 13 is releasing soon in Brooklyn Nets colors.
