Nike’s Australian Sneaker First Is Here For The Fans

December 3rd marks the 35th anniversary of the iconic Air Force 1 (AF-1) and its history rooted in basketball. To celebrate, for the first time ever Nike Australia is bringing local customisation to Australia and giving back to local basketball community programs with the exclusive Blank Canvas project.

70 lucky Australians will get their hands on rare, hand customised AF-1 sneakers – a valuable collection piece for any sneaker or street art fan. 35 pairs of Triple White AF-1’S and 35 pairs of Triple Black AF-1’s will be customised by Sydney street artist, Phibs.

All shoes (black and white) will go on sale from 11am Sunday 3rd December via and at the Battle Force event in Melbourne. Find out more here. All purchases from the Blank Canvas project will be donated to the YMCA to be invested in basketball culture and support its local basketball initiatives.
