There arguably isn’t a more recognizable sneaker than the Nike Air Force 1. Yet, instead of resting on its laurels, the brand has constantly modified and reimagined Bruce Kilgore’s 1982-design, either for functional or fashionable (or both) purposes. For its latest ensemble, the Nike Sportswear classic has emerged with non-standard suede and nylon materials, as well as a mismatched color palette.
Having already launched in Asia, the newly-surfaced pair features a quilted inner-lining perfect for the cold weather. Hairy suede fabric takes over panels at the forefoot and heel, leaving mid-foot underlays to revel in a contrasting nylon material. In addition to varying in textures, the Air Force 1‘s construction also differs in colors, with shades of grey clashing with hits of light and cool blue. The disparate arrangement extends itself onto the sole unit, which introduces both new hues and patterns: the midsole opts for a “dirty” look that sits right below neon green stitching, while designed-for-basketball-tread favors a rich purple makeup.
Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and expect a stateside Nike.com launch as the new year gets going.
Elsewhere under the NIKE, Inc. umbrella, the Air Jordan 3 is set to launch in handfuls of compelling colorways throughout 2022.
