More Images! Alleged Civilist x Nike Air Force 1
News on this release was first published on March 24, 2022.
Update September 21, 2022: Ever since the first leaks surfaced in March, there’s been little word about the Civilist x Nike Air Force 1 ... until now! A fresh batch of imagery has surfaced. Peep the pics below and stay locked for more info on this alleged colab.
Images have emerged of a currently unreleased Nike Air Force 1 collaboration by the hands of Civilist, the German skate store who worked on a similar SB Dunk back in 2020. It looks like this AF-1 is either a sequel to that colab, or it could be a scrapped concept that has somehow made it to a handful of entities, such as Dallas-based store Private Selection, who have shared the shots above.
These Uptowns feature the same thermochromic treatment as the Dunks, meaning the uppers change colour when in contact with heat. These images show this aspect in effect, displaying the same wild rainbow spectrum as the 2020 colab. However, it looks less vibrant than the Dunks as it appears there is a ‘frosted’ layer above the colour.,
With more space to work with, there are additional branding elements, namely the Civilist store name printed in all caps on the lateral heel counter, plus smiley face graphics on the tongue. The shoes are finished with white rubber midsoles featuring pink Air branding, joined to gum outsoles.
Peep the images above and stay tuned to see if these ever get a retail release. In the meantime, click below to shop all the latest Air Force 1s on Nike’s webstore!
