Throwback to 2002, a time when Nike’s basketball dominance was unprecedented, their affiliation to the NBA on the rise and a kickstarter for the succession of dunk-dominated releases. 
 
To follow their partnership with the NBA, Nike created an ad campaign used during the 2002 playoffs which included a fictional basketball team that went by the name of the Roswell Rayguns. A fictional team set up by the sportswear giants went onto form inspiration for a number of silhouettes following, including the much-coveted 2005 Nike ‘Raygun’ SB Dunk, incorporated with a collage of orange, yellow and black.

With that in mind, this time-travelling all-star team has made its way into Nike’s plans for 2021 in the form of the Air Force 1. The upcoming Air Force 1 '07 LV8 Rayguns release adorns the usual white accents of the AF1 silhouette, fused with the orange, yellow and black of the classic Rayguns outfit. Embroidered basketball detailing, black laces and outsoles round off a fitting start to the new year for the sporting innovators.
 
The Nike Air Force 1 '07 LV8 Rayguns are available to register to purchase on SEVENSTORE Launches now.
