Simple-as-can-be Nike Air Force 1s for the spring season remind us that not only has this model been around long enough to have cycled back through these foundational looks several times, but that it’s also responsible for paving the way for those very same styles. It all comes full-circle with this new Air Force 1 High Premium in black leather with a full-on white sole, a reminder that the lifestyle explosion of the last few years that’s brought along a new eye on colorblocking, was strongly influenced by the iconic varsity styling pioneered on models like the early AF1s. So here we have the AF1 in its XXX anniversary expertly executing arguably the most widespread trend in casual sneakers today; any doubt it’ll still be a major player come year LX? Stick with Sneaker News for the next thirty years of Air Force 1, and pre-order this April release from CrookedTongues in the meantime.
