The full scope of NIKE, Inc.’s 2021 has yet to unfold, but the North American sportswear behemoth has already given enthusiasts much to anticipate. Among its plans, the Oregon-based company has prepped what’s ostensibly a nod between the original Nike Air Force 1 and Air Jordan 1, as the former has recently emerged in an alternating “Black/University Red” and “Royal/Black” arrangement.
Embroidered with “’82” on the lateral heel, the forthcoming take on Bruce Kilgore’s design indulges in two inaugural color-blockings of Peter Moore’s famed 1985 silhouette. “Black” takes up the majority of the pair’s upper (with the midfoot panels and tongue boasting a knit-like construction), but toe boxes, heel panels, profile swooshes and “NIKE AIR” branding on the tongue don either “Royal” (right shoe) or “University Red” (left shoe) tones. (By contrast, a previously-seen Jordan 1 Mid dresses up predominantly in white and features two original Force’s red and blue palettes.) Underfoot, outsoles follow suit, while midsoles’ “AIR” detailing revels in their shoe’s respective titular hue.
