Krink was invited to create an Air Force 1 Low Supreme for Nike's 2008 1World capsule, which commissioned 18 global designers, artists, and influencers to create their own AF1s. The shoe features a full 3M reflective metallic silver upper with Krink's signature dripping paint detailing, with a tonal silver midsole and a gum rubber outsole underfoot. It also contains Krink branding throughout.
The shoe came in a custom silver box with a Krink K-70 Ink Marker. Edition of 500.
The shoes were released at the Mercer St. Nike store, also painted by Craig Costello for the event.
