Originally these were known as the “Dragon” Air Force and was limited to sales only in Asia. They were eventually released within the widely acclaimed 1World Pack. This pair was designed by former Boston Redsox ace, Japanese born Daisuke “Dice K” Matsuzaka. They’re more commonly known simply as Dice K’s. Personally aside from the CLOT’s and Marok’s, the Dice K’s were my favorite within the 1World Pack.
Collectors frequently give the same regard to these beauties based on the variety of top tier materials. Ponyhair covers the tip & toe-box, a leather wrapped midsole that sits above an orange outsole. An amazing dragon scaled leather drapes the eyestay and foxing. There is even a dragon logo that forms the number 18 on the heel of the shoe; the number Dice K donned while pitching for the Red Sox. Premium at its finest to say the least for this pair.
