These are pretty remarkable in terms of color. The HK AF1’s may be the only other time I can truly remember Nike using anything similar to “Gorge Green” and making it work. I don’t think these neccessarily top those, but they’re still sharp nonetheless and definitely a case of the Swoosh diggin’ deep into the Crayola box.
This Air Force 1 is constructed like the Black/Black/Varsity Red colorway releasing a month earlier, which also features a combination of pebbled and patent leather. Pebbled leather comprises the main part of the upper, which is surrounded by patent leather on the toe cap, vamp, eyestays, and heel counter areas. The Nike swoosh symbols that overlay both sides of the upper are also patent leather. Only a solid white midsole and red label on the tongue break up the otherwise gorge green exterior. [FLU]
Slated to hit stores in September. See more pics @ FL Unlocked.
