Nike‘s classic Air Force 1 is an easily-wearable staple sneaker but for those who love the timeless style yet crave a more elevated finish, this latest update is perfect. Inspired by the AF1’s heritage on the basketball court, the silhouette retains many of the trademark details but with chic, design-led elements.
The upper comprises of smooth white leather, complemented by subtle suede panels on the tongue and heel. On the lateral side, the signature Swoosh is sliced in half and replaced in an asymmetrical fashion, with the tail mismatched in suede. The heel tabs arrive in red on one foot and blue on the other, each boasting debossed Nike text branding with matching coloring on the insole. The midfoot perforations are halved, with each foot only featuring a fraction of the usual amount and a crisp white midsole completes the look.
