Nike Sportswear Unveils "Crescent City" Collection For All-Star February 2014

These three shoes get the "All-Star" treatment and are set to drop during All-Star weekend in February.
The Nike Sportswear Crescent City Collection lionizes the characteristics that make New Orleans different from anyplace else: the food, culture and distinctive wildlife. These three qualities take center stage on Nike’s Flystepper 2K3, Air Up ’14, and Air Force 1 Low CMFT — designs as unique as the city that inspired them.

First up, the Nike Air Up '14. Crawfish are a NOLA staple and any New Orleanian will tell you they are best when boiled. A crave-worthy take on the Nike Air Up mimics fresh-out-of-the-pot crawdads. These sneakers get the job done with no seasoning required, featuring a crustacean-red upper complete with water droplets and a steamy graphic.

Next, the Nike Air Force 1 Low CMFT Premium. As the best of the best come together in the Big Easy, the Nike Air Force 1 pays tribute in kind. Like gumbo, the latest Air Force 1 is a collage of the most memorable Nike Sportswear upper materials — such as foamposite and cork — and prints including elephant, gator, pony hair, and safari.

Finally, the Nike Flystepper 2K3. In New Orleans, alligators are king of the bayou. In remembrance of another king’s first pair of Nike’s, Nike Sportswear combines the elevated silhouette of the Flystepper and adds the signature perforated quarter panels of the Zoom 2K3. Featuring faux-alligator strap enclosures, the real tribute to the tough skin of Alligator Mississippiensis takes the form of a raised synthetic covering the toe.

A limited release, look out for the "Crescent City" Collection at select Nike accounts worldwide on Thursday, February 13th, 2013. Retail prices is TBA. Once they have been announced, I will make an update and let everyone know.

Enjoy the official images below of the "Crescent City" Collection including the "Crawfish" Nike Air Up '14, "Gumbo" Nike Air Force 1 Low CMFT and "Alligator" Nike Flystepper 2K3. If you're interested in picking any of these up when they release, check in with your local spots to see if they will be receiving them. Those of you looking for a pair now can, grab them from eBay here.
