The Nike Air Force 1 High was designed for basketball, but it’s grown into a lifestyle staple over the last 39 years. And while hundreds of special collaborations and modifications demonstrate the model’s cachet within casual wear, its winter-ready Utility-variant drives the point home.

At quick and uneducated glance, the newly-surfaced pair resembles the high-top version of the ever-memeable all-black Air Force 1. Yet, closer inspection reveals handfuls of updates to Bruce Kilgore’s original design from 1982. For starters, tumbled leather makes up the entirety of the sneaker’s upper, with suede and canvas entering the mix at the upper heel panel and lockdown strap around the ankle. The sport-inspired attachment around the shoe’s collar is reworked with a “combat” aesthetic, boasting a much more barebones build and rugged hardware. Underfoot, sole units indulge in a “Black” and “Gum Red Brown” color combination, with both midsole and outsole components donning more protective and rugged construction than normal. The tread pattern and length promise improved grip in inclement weather conditions.

No Nike.com release date has been confirmed by the brand, but that’s likely to change soon. In the meantime, enjoy official images of the pair ahead.
