Nike Sportswear issued Hyperfuse-constructed hybrid versions for several of its most popular models this summer, and while we don’t know the full breadth of the collection or its release dates, the next newfangled way of building those shoes is with Vac-Tech molding. The Nike Air Force 1 Low VT Premium is the only one of the set that we’ve seen before, if you recall the black and purple joints that dropped alongside Kobe Bryant’s Air Force 1 Foamposites this February. This new Quickstrike AF1 Vac-Tech is even cleaner, a 100% white design whose milky translucent sole has these looking like an ivory sculpture. They’re not gonna fetch international poacher prices, but you have to expect with such limited numbers that you’ll be paying a pretty penny if you miss out on the official release.

If you could only get one pair of Nike Air Force 1s to last you for the rest of your life, it’d have to be the white-on-whites, right? This classic design is so significant in the sneaker world that when news broke of the Red Carpet grand opening in Brooklyn this weekend, they were careful to note that all-white and all-black Uptowns are always in stock. But they won’t be able to say the same of this new model scheduled to drop in July, as the Nike Air Force 1 VT Premium pictured above is a Quickstrike release. That means you might have to do some legwork to get your hands on this milky molded beauty, but even if you have to resort to buying from a reseller, the sheer elegance of this design seems well worth it. Click through for more angles and stick with Sneaker News for the exact release date for these Air Force 1 Vac-Tech Quickstrikes.
