Nike is dropping two brand new colorways for the 30th anniversary of the iconic Air Force 1 Low.
First off, both these new Air Force 1s are the nicest we’ve seen in a long time. The classic white-on-white and black-on-black colour schemes have been given a twist courtesy of a nice mix of materials
The white versions features uppers constructed mainly from 3M light reflective synthetic leather, while the translucent soles are slightly off-white, which makes for subtle contrast to a simple colour scheme.
The blacks employ a denim fabric almost all over the shoes, including the midsoles! Black nubuck leather is used for the swooshes, on the heels and as piping around the panels, again providing rather interesting details for a basic colourway.
Sneaker Freaker has details on Nike iD’s new Air Force 1 Bespoke ($800) available in black or white.
Let’s dive into the detail. The padding and lining have been removed and the shoe itself has been pared back to reveal a minimalist construction that has more in common with dress shoes than Rucker Park. The laces are hand-rolled and stitched. The leather-wrapped midsole is both lighter and softer than a standard Air Force. The sockliner is premium leather with full-length memory foam. The hang tags are also leather, with personalised laser etching all part of the package.
The Nike Air Force 1 “TecTuff” is your partner in crime for rough climates. Take this Beachtree colorway. Strong enough for the winter but clean enough for casual wear, this sandy makeup places scratch-resistant paneling on a smooth leather base.
The “Blue Dusk”, features Blue Dusk pebbled leather on the toe area, heel, quarter panel and midfoot, while the remaining panels are colored in white. Additionally, a black Swoosh/heel tab and a white midsole finish this Air Force 1′s look.
At 12PM EST, Nike will release 750 pairs of Air Force 1 iDs with a wool material option. The wool option will disappear once all 750 are sold out. Get your customized pair at nikeid.com before they’re all gone!
