The whole point of camouflage is to obscure one’s appearance, but the neutral colors used on the traditional four-color print also ensure that you’re going to see it (especially during the summertime) anywhere people are looking for a balance to their wardrobe and khaki just won’t cut it. So what started as a concealment technology has evolved beyond its practical survival/warfare benefits to confer a certain rugged appeal, and it’s with this context in mind that the Nike Air Force 1 Max Air VT bursts onto the scene as the fourth XXX Anniversary ‘Pearl’ collection drop. They take the AF1’s bar-setting heel cushion and expand it to the full foot, opting for a translucent midsole so that everyone who ‘can’t see’ your Uptowns will also be more likely to notice the unique VacTech build that accompanies this rare full-length cushion. A top-notch AF1 by any standard, these have already sold out at Japan’s mita sneakers; will you be fortunate enough to grab a pair when they hit 21 Mercer this Friday?
