The Air Force 1 has had one crazy resurgence to the top of Nike Sportswear’s most featured retro silhouettes. While offerings like the VLONE x Nike Air Force 1 and the upcoming OFF WHITE x Nike Air Force 1 will remain out of reach for most sneakerheads out there, there’s still been a number of OG bring-backs like the Linen colorway and a number of city-exclusives that had AF1 purists more than happy to shell out a couple of extra bucks to reserve their pair. All of that heat isn’t even considering the modernized updates like the Nike Air Force 1 Low Flyknit, returning soon in this Deep Burgundy offering for the Spring 2017 season.
If you’re a fan of Bruce Kilgore’s iconic basketball model turned lifestyle staple, but want to shed some of that vintage weight, then this pair is the perfect opportunity to do just that. The ‘Ultra’ tooling on the outsole skips out on any Lunarlon updates for hidden indentations for a lighter ride. The breathable Flyknit is flexible and breathable enough for the warm seasons ahead while this ominous combination of Black, Burgundy, and Gold works incredibly well together. Premium touches help elevate this pair to the next level too, thanks to a leather tongue with gold branding and a leather Swoosh on the side panels.
Expect to find this pair on Nike.com in the near future.
