The Nike Air Force 1 Low has been an integral part in the brand’s ascension to sportswear stardom over the last few decades. As Bruce Kilgore’s original design celebrates its 40th anniversary, the low-top-variant – which debuted a year later in 1983 – continues to expand an already-expansive roster of styles.
Unofficially dubbed the “82” theme, a pair recently surfaced with up-cycled materials and nods to the sneaker’s inaugural year. An off-white, “Sail”-reminiscent hue takes over much of the upper, which features dual stacked profile swooshes; a “Rust” hue animates the bottom logo and introduces suede into the mix. Elsewhere, the Air Force 1 dons non-standard branding, likely prompted by the “82” theme – which is referenced via the tongue label – and the sneaker’s Next Nature design ethos (Next Nature is a series of products that uses at least 20% recycled materials). Down below, the oft-imitated sole unit keeps things relatively simple, although the made-for-basketball tread seemingly boasts a cork build that further contributes to the pair’s eco-consciousness.
No firm Nike.com release details have been confirmed by the brand, but that’s likely to change as summer gets going. As you wait, enjoy official images of the shoes ahead.
