The New Nike Air Force 1 Upstep Is a Less-Than-Subtle Blue Rework

Here’s “Aluminum/Obsidian.”

The Nike Air Force 1 is always street-ready in whatever shape or size. The AF1’s undergone many evolutions including the hyped Special Field so the new Upstep “Aluminum/Obsidian” can hardly compare.

The new Upstep is primarily a color makeover sporting a leather upper with leather overlays in a darling “Baby Blue.” The sneaker delivers an exaggerated midsole over a gum outsole and tonal lacing.

Shop the “Aluminum/Obsidian” at select stockists including Naked at $138 USD. Look to another Upstep with “Summit White.”
