The New England Patriots journey has taken them from the American Football League and Nickerson Field to modern day dynasty in glittering Gillette Stadium. The latest feather in New England’s tri-corner hat is a limited edition sneaker from Nike.
Inspired by the connection between team owner Robert Kraft and the Boston community, the Patriots Air Force 1 Ultraforce RKK sees Nike’s iconic Air Force decked out in Patriots colors. Historical and modern elements come together. The classic look of the Air Force 1 is augmented with premium materials and lightweight Nike Ultra technology. A sleek, silver and black upper is joined by the original mascot of the New England Patriots, Pat Patriot, the rugged minuteman who burst from the sketchbook of Globe cartoonist Phil Bissell ready to settle things with General Cornwallis smash-mouth style.
As football games can so often come down to a matter of inches, the Patriots Air Force 1 Ultraforce RKK features details like special packaging, extra laces, and “We Are All Patriots” branded insoles.
The New England Patriots Air Force 1 Ultraforce RKK is available for purchase exclusively at Bodega, on a first come first served basis, they will be on sale in store only.
Retail price is $150 - proceeds from the sale of the Patriots Air Force 1 Ultraforce RKK will benefit the sports and physical activity programs at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston.
