The Nike Auto Force 180 Mid AC is set to hit retailers next month. This Air Force 180 with an autoclaved (read: vulcanized) sole will release in two dark editions in October. Both go heavy on black leather with black patent leather providing some tonal accents. For one pair, that’s it: black on black with a white sole. The other joints add some blue and yellow. When we showed you these first, all the way back in March, we reported that these would play a key role in the ‘Force vs. Flight Story’. While it’s clear Nike has an East vs. West Rivals Pack on the way for late ’09, we haven’t heard more on the Force/Flight promotion. Stick with Sneaker News for updates on all things autoclaved.
