The year 2022 has officially passed, as has the 40th anniversary of the Nike Air Force 1. That doesn’t mean we’ll see less of the Bruce Kilgore-designed emblem in the future, as it’s already surfaced in a number of planned colorways, both collaborative and inline.
Blacked-out stitching makes the shoe look a little bit fancier
In terms of broad release, the Air Force 1 is mostly adhering to the essentials. This is demonstrated by this newly disclosed pair, which is dressed exclusively in neutral colors. What the colorway lacks in tone, it more than makes up for in texture: the paneling, for example, alternates between perforated, smooth, and tumbled leather, the latter of which changes in degree. Furthermore, the Swoosh is outlined with a thick, blacked-out stitching that matches the branding on the midsole, heel tab, and mesh tongue.
The Nike Air Force 1 is one of the most popular sneakers ever manufactured, so it’s no surprise that the design keeps evolving. The Swoosh evolves and changes with it. The new Nike Air Force 1 features an embroidered outline around the logo, producing a style that is both minimalistic and cutting-edge.
