NIKE AIR FORCE 1 LOW WEEK

Is the Nike Air Force 1 the ‘OG’ of the sneaker game? It was one of Nike’s first re-issues, hitting the 90’s in an eclectic mix of colorways, materials, and Swoosh forms, then exploding in the 21st Century with numerous artist-collaborations, co.jp releases, and of course, the Air Force 1 Bespoke. The Air Force 1 aficionado will never be fully satisfied with his collection, because there simply isn’t a complete Air Force 1 Low collection out there (and if there is, please step forward) and there’s just too much to be had, but too little going around. One of the ‘staples’ of any legit Air Force 1 Low bundle is undoubtedly one of the cleanest colorways in the history of sneakers (yes, we’re going that far) – the ‘Linen’ of 2001.

Originally releasing in 2001 as a Japan-exclusive drop, the Nike Air Force 1 Low ‘Linen’ impeccably matched upper and Swoosh that not only exemplified the clean attitude of the Air Force 1 Low, but proved that the color pink isn’t a gender-limited design cue. Many, if not all Air Force 1 loyalists, point to the Linen as one of the greatest sneakers of all-time, if not one of the greatest Air Force 1s of all-time – a magnificent honor for a revered sneaker that played a major hand in the sneaker horizon today. In 2007, Nike Sportswear came through with a great Air Force 1 release dubbed the ‘Un-Linen’, as it used the same Linen base with an equally gorgeous University Blue pairing. These ’01s are definitely a Classic, but get ready for another string of Air Force 1 heat coming your way for the rest of the week straight from Classics Revisited!
