Classics Revisited: mita x Nike Air Force 1 Low (2004)
Let’s go back to back features of Air Force 1 Lows designed by Japanese retailers by following yesterday’s Classics Revisited of the atmos x Nike Air Force 1 Low with this 2004 design my mita. At the point of its release, this Air Force 1 Low was among the most outrageous colorways ever created, but along with a visual distinction this mita design must be recognized for its supreme selection of materials. White leather toe-boxes were contrasted with the luxurious ostrich-skin toeguard, a dark black nubuck on the mid-panel, Swoosh, and lace-placket, a glossy patent leather on the heel, and one under-represented decision of Nike Dri-Fit on the interior lining completes this amazing design. The mita x Nike Air Force 1 Low is heralded as one of the greatest ever, and even Nike used the mita-bred colorway to create it’s own general release in 2006. Fortunately, deadstock pairs are available around $200-250 these days (an alternative to the $200 AF1-XXX releases that have been dropping every month or so).
