A Closer Look at Nike’s “The 1 Reimagined” Pack: EXPLORER
Let these Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1 take you to unknown places.
Adventurous and utilitarian are the best words to describe the Explorer duo from Nike‘s “The 1 Reimagined” collection. As suggested by its name, the “EXPLORER XX” is designed especially for women who’re bold and fearless in different arenas of life. With these reworked Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1 silhouettes, you’re empowered to try all things new, whether it be visiting a new city or picking up that hobby you’ve always wanted to master.
Priced between $145 USD and $150 USD, these two pairs will be available for purchase at Nike stores in North America on February 7, and on the SNKRS app on February 9. The global release is slated for February 16. Take a closer look at the shoes below, and be sure to check out the Jester, Lover and Rebel styles as well.
Air Force 1 loyalists will be able to appreciate this stunning rework of the iconic sneaker. Keeping its low-top form, the shoe is reconstructed with feminine materials and hard-to-miss design details. In particular, the laces are replaced by a lockdown strap that’s simultaneously stylish and functional. If you look closely, you’ll find that the midsole now sees a translucent layer, while the heel branding is updated with a simple AF-1 embroidered tag.
Drawing inspiration from military wear, the Air Jordan 1 “EXPLORER XX” features a laced-up boot silhouette that all cool girls would love. A translucent, mesh-like material and soft leather are employed to juxtapose with the rugged shape of the high-tops. Of course, you can find the classic Swoosh and Air Jordan wings logo gracing the lateral of the shoes.
