These Are Not Your Average White-On-White Air Force 1 Sneakers!
In case you haven’t noticed, white-on-white Air Force 1s are not the look this year. After enjoying a strong run in recent years, folks have actually moved away from AF1s as a whole in favor of Air Jordans, Nike Dunks, and a bunch of really, really, really bright sneakers. If nothing else, the most popular sneakers right now are colorful, to say the least.
Nike seems to have noticed that, because they’ve brought the bright, vibrant colors that they’ve been using on a lot of their basketball sneakers this year—most notably, on their line of Hyperdunks—and put them onto the Air Force 1′s classic silhouette. Is that a good thing? Well, by the looks of things…yes! Just take a look at these Air Force 1s.
Nike has used their patented Wolf Grey colorway alongside a very bright Solar Red (as seen on the LeBron 8 Lows recently) to add a little life—okay, a lot of life—back into their staple sneaker. And it works. They’ve also tripled the Nike Air logo on the tongue of the sneaker and found a way to squeeze a little more color into the sneaker there as well to really bring some pop to these AF1s.
It’s not going to help revive the AF1 craze right away. But it does make us want to slip a pair of AF1s onto our feet before the summer ends. Well done, Nike. Well done.
