Nike Air Force 1 VT PRM Skive Tec
Even at age thirty, the Nike Air Force 1 still has a load of untapped potential left to be explored for the future. As Nike continues to excel in engineering some of the most groundbreaking materials and manufacturing methods, the Air Force 1 will only grow alongside it – not only as the anchor to Nike Sportswear’s blossoming catalog, but as the go-to model for experimenting with these new innovations. The Air Force 1 has been Deconstructed, Bespoked, iD’ed, Hyperfused, VTed, and Workbooted, but continues to display a resilience unlike any other; simply put, it would be foolish to think that the Air Force 1 has any signs of slowing down.
This latest reimagination of the AF1 is called the Air Force 1 VT PRM Skive Tec – a premium-grade build done in seamless VT-fashion with a unique suede upholstery on the toe, Swoosh, and heel-tab; the piping along the upper, which outlines the design of the Air Force 1, is embossed outwards and creates almost an inside-out/negative image of the Air Force 1 (sorta like the Air Force 1 ‘Inside Out’ releases of the mid-2000′s). These two colorways of Grey/Red and Black/Grey are currently scheduled for a release this Holiday 2012 season, beginning as soon as next month. Check out both colorways of this unique Air Force 1 below and let us know what you think about this interesting Skive Tec concept!
We'll see I'm pretty wary of anything sounding like vactech after I got duped by the wool grey prms last year. Gorgeous out the box and for 3-4x out but after that they looked like crumplied tin foil. Absolute garbage. I'm guessing the piping might help with the creasing that was so bad on the last iteration of this technology.
Good article, both pairs are must cops. they should make the sole grey on the Black/Grey pair. Even still these have a timeless look to them, they hit a triple.
