Unlike most other sneakers in history, the Nike Air Force 1 Low has been linked to sports, fashion, culture, and music throughout the previous 40 years. Bruce Kilgore’s design has taken on a graffiti-inspired style for its current ensemble, presumably harkening back to its origins.
Hairy suede and textile panels create a contrast and premium look
The majority of the upper of the sneaker is white, with greyscale spray paint “splatter” and textile panels providing some contrast. The profile swooshes and upper heel overlays are made of a light grey hairy suede that contrasts with the themed Air Force 1 and matches the outsole underfoot in tonal arrangement. Logos on the tongue label and sock-liner add a bold, heritage-appropriate orange hue to the mix, with the latter sporting an action spray paint can motif. Finally, for a last conceptual touch, the midsoles have a semi-yellowed surface that references to either masking tape or vintage footwear.
The new Nike Air Force 1 Low is a must-have for people who like the look of the shoe as it is and don’t want to buy a lot of copies. Any way you look at it, the new theme works well with the AF1 model and gives you an interesting style to buy.
