Celebrating the "Old Gold Mountain."

Every year, San Francisco's Chinatown gets more tourists than the city's Golden Gate Bridge. A hustle and bustle of culture and heritage, it was built in the mid-1800s when the first Chinese immigrants stepped foot in America in search of opportunity. To commemorate this, the American sportswear giant has been working on the Nike Air Force 1 Low "San Francisco Chinatown" - and we're taking our first look yet.

Crafted from a "White" full leather construction, this Air Force 1 features a unique gradient effect across the Nike Swooshes and Air midsole. The traditional Chinese lotus is debossed around the heel, while the characters for "Old Gold Mountain" make their way to the tongue tag in a shimmering metallic gold hue, nodding to the original name that the first immigrants called San Fran. This is then finished off with an icy blue outsole underneath, adding depth to the overall design.
