The most recent release from Nike Sportswear’s ‘XXX Pearl’ capsule celebrating the Air Force 1’s 30th anniversary released a couple weeks back when the Air Maxed-out camo edition dropped in limited quantities. That pair utilized VacTech construction for a sleek upper that gained depth from its molded appearance, but what if you could do that same kind of visual trickery on an even smoother design? That’s the idea with this sixth Pearl Collection drop, a Nike Air Force 1 Low built with the aid of high-frequency welding technology whose tonal grey digital camouflage takes on a different pattern so as to facilitate something approximating an urban ‘concrete jungle’. Given how hot grey/white sneakers have been of late, this is likely to be a monster hit when it arrives at select retailers this summer; are these the best Pearl Air Force 1s yet? Let us know on the other side after you check out a bunch of additional images, and be sure to check back with Sneaker News for the US release date.
"a couple weeks back when the digi-camo dropped in limited quantities. That pair utilized VacTech construction for a sleek upper that gained depth from its molded appearance" Camo VT weren't digi camo
I dnt care how many thumbs down I get but uummm the Air Force 1 DID fall off! Don't get it twisted, I love and still rock AF1's, I copped a pair of the maroon joints w/ the patent leather on the toe, I copped the denim joints last May, the 30th anniversary pearl lows when they dropped and I copped the VT Camo's. But let's be honest...there haven't been many "must have" releases over the last few years and TO ME these aren't either. The concept is cool but it jus looks cheesy...
It's amazing how many different things they've done with the AF-1 since 1982. This shoe just shows that they're not even close to done yet!!! Must cop for me. THE END
Forces just killin everything out there this year....I hope all the Rookies,Hyperbeast & cornballs keep going 4 the foams & the same Ol J's. Yall make my life so much easier.
They never left....stay outa Footlocker & step your game up from strictly GR'S. If U did U would see that.
Huh!? I posted my OPINION, jackass...WTF are u talkin about? Name some MUST HAVE air force ones over the last 5 yrs and see how short that list is compared to other Nike releases. Dnt ever doubt my knowledge bitch, and dnt confuse all ur knowledge of sneakers for taste...these are ugly as shit. Again that's MY OPINION. I couldn't care less if YOU like these and every other pair that dropped since '98...sneaker game so fcked up ppl dnt even respect an individual's opinion anymore smh
I'm refering to this comment because u asked me too...1st off, add five pair to everything u just mentioned and that STILL doesn't add up to all the other pair of hot sneakers that dropped in the last "6-7 years" which was my original point (comprehension is apart of reading) and 2nd I made it VERY clear in my original comment that it was MY OPINION...I dnt give a damn about urs but don't judge me by attacking my knowledge of sneakers for posting my own opinion...digi camo!? knock it the fck off they coulda at least gave it a milky sole like the year of the rabbit's or an air max sole like the VT Camo's..
Yeah, your AF1 IQ is near zero. The denim of last year was not the comeback that you mention. Do you not remember the umm, OneWorld releases? How about the string of Supreme Forces that released around 2007, ie. the AF1 x '95 Air Max, the Barkley mid joints, the AF1 x Air Max '97 joints, AF1 x Talaria joints. Don't even get me started with the Supreme canvas joints. And, I only went back about 6-7 years. You speak hastily, and like one who is not knowing. Stay copping those sub-par Jordan retro releases, son.
U really dont deserve a respone cause clearly your Af-1 IQ is 0.....just do your research Herb...your way off.....the denim joints was the comback? Lmao...smgdh.
Fuck outta here. lets be honest. They left. Putting out very subpar releases. The beginning of the return were the premium Denim joints from last year. Camo's this year. Now this. Those are the quality ones.
