How do you keep one of the quintessential Nike Silhouettes fresh after all these years? Stick a gum sole on a plush suede upper and make it monochrome! After a particularly experimental year with the Air Force 1, with a military spec option in the SF AF1 and its variations, the reintroduction of the Duckboot and Lunarforce models, as well as a literary of brand collaborations on the classic silhouette (shop the collection here), it's nice to see Nike bring things back to basics, making some slight tweaks.
For starters, Nike has blessed us with a plush Particle Pink pair of premium classics. Taking an eye-catching muted pink suede upper and jelling it with a gum sole, it's a no-doubt winner in our eyes. The specs Include a memory foam insole for heightened comfort below the eye line, a tonal leather swoosh joins statement branding on the tongue and heel, plus a pink statement Deubré located on the base of the laces rounding out the exquisite upper. Having seen previous pink iterations in Nike Lab Jewels and AF1 ultras sell out in record time, we're giving you fair warning for this one!
Also arriving to add a staple silhouette to your rotation is a classic black and gum iteration of the AF1. Perfect for any dress down look, and versatile enough to work into nearly any outfit, it's no wonder this drop will be high in demand. Featuring a nigh on identical specification breakdown to the Particle Pink colourway, the difference is in the colours. Want to be bold and brash? A statement pink pair should catch some glances in any occasion. Want to be subdued and classy? It's Black and Gum to subtly rule over the crowd.
Releasing tomorrow at 08:00 am BST (29/09/17) so make sure to be ready for this one!
