Updated April 12th, 2017: The NikeLab Air Force 1 “Jewel” releases in a trio of mid and low-top colorways on April 13th, 2017.
The Nike Air Force 1 continues to thrive as one of Nike Sportswear’s most featured silhouettes. The lifestyle icon has been the recipient of a number of updates and must-have collaborations recently, but perhaps the most surprising construction is the return of the oft-forgotten alternate Jewel branding in the Nike Air Force 1 Jewel. The last time we saw this feature was through a collaboration with CLOT atop the Lunar-based model a few years back, but it appears that Nike is bringing the Jewel Swoosh back atop both the Air Force 1 Low Jewel and the Air Force 1 Mid Jewel, complete with premium NikeLab-like treatments in off-white Sail, Cargo Khaki, and Pearl Pink, each featuring a premium tumbled leather base with an all-white bottom. The new “jewel” Air Force 1’s drop April 1st at select Nike Sportswear retailers and Nike.com.
