Given how important the Nike Air Force 1 has been to the brand’s success and visibility, its 40th anniversary will surely be a blockbuster event. Before 2022 arrives, however, Bruce Kilgore’s design has emerged in dozens of compelling, in-line arrangements, with the latest arriving as a women’s-exclusive “Sail/Light Armory Blue/Chili Red”-colored option.
While undisclosed as part of a larger Nike Sportswear collection, the newly-surfaced pair shares details with a previously-seen Air Max 97. A mix of textile swaths make up the silhouette’s body, with miniature swoosh and heart graphics appearing on the tongue label and insole. A predominantly “Sail” base is accompanied by “Chili Red” and “Light Armory Blue” striping throughout the forefoot, mid-foot and heel. Profile swooshes deliver a corduroy-reminiscent proposition in the latter blue hue, creating an Air Force 1 perfect for spring and summer.
A stateside Nike.com release date is surely in the works, but this pair has already hit retailers in Asia. In either case, enjoy images of the shoes here below.
Elsewhere under the NIKE, Inc. umbrella, the Air Jordan 1 “Light Fusion Red” has surfaced via official images.
