Nike's Monochrome Air Force 1 Upstep Is Made for Minimalists

Peep that platform midsole.

By //Footwear

Nike’s Air Force 1 sneaker is a staple silhouette for sure but with oversized kicks currently top of the trends list, styles like the M2k Tekno and the retro Monarch have become increasingly popular. The Air Force 1 Upstep, however, perfectly captures that classic-meets-contemporary look by bringing a chunky platform sole to one of our best-loved sneakers.

This particular iteration favours a monochromatic look, with the upper comprising of mostly crisp, white leather. Matching laces and a dubrae add to the tonal look, and perforations on the midfoot give the kicks their signature sporty feel. To contrast, Nike‘s Swoosh adorns the sidewalls in black, complemented by branding on the tongue and heel panel. Below lies the Air midsole in white, which is stacked to new heights – ideal for those who want a platform boost without going all-out on the dad shoe trend.

You can shop Nike’s monochrome Air Force 1 Upstep at retailers like Foot Locker for £85 GBP (approx. $113 USD). Have you seen the “Particle Rose” version, too?
