The Nike Air Force 1 Mid Offers A New “Tear-Away” Style

The Nike Air Force 1 Mid Offers A New “Tear-Away” Style

Despite debuting in 1994, the Nike Air Force 1 Mid has played an important role in celebrating the 40th anniversary of Bruce Kilgore’s iconic design. Recently, the celebration has welcomed an all-new “Tear-Away” style atop the mid-top proposition.

Clad in an off-white tone, the upcoming sneakers replace traditional leather construction for a canvas material that enables a tear-way finish. Panels across the toe and mid-foot boast star graphics, perhaps a cheeky nod to the BAPE STA that famously drew inspiration from Kilgore’s presidential basketball shoe in the early aughts. Given the “40th Anniversary” text on the tongue label and non-standard branding on the sock-liners, however, it’s more likely that the stars found throughout the Air Force 1 harken back to some detail specific to the design from ’82. Construction underneath the canvas material dons a dark navy finish that works with the “aged” sole unit for a compelling take on an oft-ridiculed version of the AF1.

Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a Nike.com launch soon.

In related sneaker news, the Air Jordan 4 is set to release in new styles come 2023.
