The Nike Air Force 1 Max Air VT “Camo” Sneakers Are Must-Haves For The Summer
It’s no secret that the Nike Air Force 1 has fallen off a little bit over the course of the last few years. Although Nike is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the AF1 this year—and doing it by releasing a bunch of special edition “Pearl” AF1 sneakers—folks aren’t wearing the classic sneakers like they once were. You can attribute that to the fact that it seems like everyone is rocking a pair of Air Jordans or Foamposites these days or to the fact that the market became a little too saturated with AF1s after their rise in popularity. But, the fact remains that, if you’re trying to cop a few pairs of sneakers for the summertime right now, you’re probably not looking at any AF1s.
And that’s a mistake. We’re not going to sit here and tell you that every single pair of AF1s should be on your radar. But the new Nike Air Force 1 Max Air VT “Camo” (try saying that five times fast!) should most definitely be a sneaker that you’ve got your eye on now. Why? Well, first of all, the seamless, unibody, camo design on these makes them look cleaner than most of the other AF1s out there right now. Because they’re camo, they’ll also go great with that pair of camo cargos you’ve got sitting on ice right now while you wait for warmer weather. The 360-degree Max Air unit is also something that hasn’t traditionally been used on the AF1 silhouette. And, hell, just look at these things. They’re super fresh—and you’ll get a lot of wear out of them if you pick them up this summer.
Now, we’re not exactly sharing a secret with you here. Ever since these were first revealed on the ‘net earlier this week, folks have been clamoring them. So, we’ve got a few details that you need to know if you want to get a pair. First off, these AF1s will be released as a quickstrike on April 20. Secondly, they’re going to run you $200, making them way more expensive than traditional AF1s. And, finally, you’re going to have to stay tuned to find out exactly where you can get your hands on them. But, if you’re smart, you’re already calling and looking around to see where you can get them first. Because we can promise you that you don’t want to start off the summer without a pair of these in your closet.
