Editor’s notes: There are plenty of artist communities out there that deserve a little love, perhaps too much for all of them to take their time in the spotlight in a meaningful way, when it comes to themed sneakers, anyway.

Typically, it’s the job of sneaker customizers and designers to really present a theme or reference with a celebratory or appreciative energy, short of a purposeful and focused collaboration. General releases, on the other hand, don’t tend to stray too often from the line of ambiguity.

Well, this next release which takes the ever-iconic Nike Air Force 1 Low as its canvas, is an exception as it proudly celebrates a growing and very vocal art community that is home to an extremely talented roster of creatives – nail art.

The final shout out to all the nail technicians out there? A graphic print detailing a hand with a fresh set sat on the sneaker’s insoles. If you ask me, these are the perfect pair of sneakers for keeping secrets in…
