Continuing its premium treatment for the Super Eagles, Nike have unveiled a new look for the Air Force 1 React, wrapping it in those unmistakeable ‘Naija’ stylings of forest green, neon green and black.

Nike have been teasing further drops from the extended Nigeria 2020/21 collection recently, with a focus on sneakers seeing both the Air Max 95 and Air Presto getting new ‘Naija’ paint jobs. And now the Air Force 1 React becomes the latest sneaker to get the treatment.
