As we’ve seen over the last couple of years, the retro trend hasn’t budged one bit. Consumers are all about the classic 1980s look, and few can imitate what Nike has accomplished with the Air Force 1 Low.
In fact, even after forty years+ of influence, the AF1 continues to be the most ubiquitous sneaker in the lifestyle sneaker market. All the designers at the Swoosh are tasked with is to inject slight modifications, and it’s clear a retro basketball aesthetic is the goal here. The tongue is completely refitted with jersey mesh, while the sole is attached via a varsity-jacket styling with slightly larger dimensions than the typical Swoosh seen on standard pairs. Add in the AF-1 tag at the tail of the check, and you have just enough separation to give the Air Force 1 Low a new look.
Already previewed in a white/red mix, this specific Air Force 1 style now arrives in an attractive sail/green pairing; see official images of the shoes ahead and stay tuned for a release on Nike.com.
