Nike Sportswear has offered white (perf) packs in each of the last two summers along with a variety of kicks that utilize the tablecloth-like gingham check pattern to signal sneakers made for summertime. So when you combine the two with a gum sole on one of the best loved silhouettes in history, you’ve got a recipe for a block party your friends will be talking about for years. Check out this new Nike Air Force 1 Low, a shoe that couldn’t be any more classically ‘summer’ if they were hung on a telephone wire overtop a gushing fire hydrant. White leather with a black Swoosh, those two colors on the gingham sockliner and a gum bottom combine to form the sneaker equivalent of a cool glass of lemonade and these simple pleasures will arrive at US NSW accounts soon; Swiss shoe spot Titolo just got theirs.
