American-Jamaican singer and rapper, Sean Kingston has described the “Little Accra” anniversary edition of Nike Air Force 1 Low as a must-have!
In a video promo for GB’s sneaker store (New York’) Kingston is heard saying “Big up to Africa, big up to the Ghana culture… “Little Accra’ in my hands right now..these are classics, you’ve gotta have them in you collection.”
As part of the 40th-Anniversary celebrations of Air Force 1, Nike has released the AF1 Low “Little Accra,” celebrating New York City’s thriving Ghanian community. This is in partnership with Afrochella co-founder and CEO, Abdul Karim Abdullah.
‘Little Accra’ arrived in a mix of “Red/Sail/Burgundy/Orange/Yellow” across premium leather and nylon uppers. Ornate gold tapestry patterns decorate the laterals and rears, a nod to a specific neighbourhood of the Boogie Down borough in the Bronx, and stylized “Little Accra” text adorns the black velvet heel tab.
Details include brass lace deubrés that display mismatched Ghanian symbols, and Anniversary Edition text appears on the tongue tab. Lace tips are found in Gold, insoles feature mismatched “Sharing Stories” and “Building Communities” messages, and crisp white midsoles and sail outsoles complete the design.
