Nike takes some design cues from one of its most popular Air Jordan 1s.
Nike’s Air Force 1 may be it’s most iconic silhouette, but that hasn’t translated to the same level of coveted status that other silhouettes enjoy for some of their models. The all-white low, mid and high top AF1s are true classics, but they’ll never enjoy the same hype as some limited release Air Jordan or Nike SB colorways. However, Nike is doing its best to change that by applying some of its more popular Air Jordan 1 colorways to the Nike Air Force 1 low.
With this release, Nike has applied the extremely popular “Shadow” Air Jordan 1 color blocking to an Air Force 1 low. The effect is quite nice, as the shoe’s share similar paneling and construction. The mix of cool grey and black on a white sole is effective in making the simple shoe stand out without being loud or gaudy. Depending on your tastes, you might prefer this version to the Black/Red or Royal versions of the Air Force 1 low.
The shoe has appeared at a few foreign retailers, which means a stateside release can’t be too far behind. Do these land on your wish list?
