Amid some controversy, budding Chinese superstar Yi JianLian left his home country in 2007 to play Basketball in the US. Drafted sixth overall by the Milwaukee Bucks, the multi talented Yi is currently averaging 10 points and 6 rebounds as a rookie starter in an unfamiliar league.
In tribute to his first year in the league, Nike is set to release the “Yi” Nike Air Force 1 Supreme. With Gucci-esque inspiration, the “Yi” Nike Air Force 1 features very rich and detailed upper combination of a Creme colored premium leather and a monogram Yi print in the toebox and midpanel. Yi’s “scorpion Yi” logo replaces the Nike Air logo at the heel tab as well.
The “Yi” Nike Air Force 1 Low is set to release as a Tier Zero release in Yi’s home country during the month of Feb.
At this point a domestic release has not been confirmed.
