Official images have emerged of an upcoming UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Force 1 collaboration, presumably in time for the model’s 40th anniversary this year. While some leaked factory shots had been doing the rounds for the past few weeks, this batch of e-comm shots confirms the legitimate existence of the shoes. At first glance, this very bright and shiny multicoloured patent leather take is a nod to the kaleidoscopic colourways that graced the AF-1 back in the mid 2000s.
In fact, this collaboration could’ve sat on the shelves of UNDEFEATED back in 2005-6 and sneakerheads would have been none the wiser, because they certainly are representative of the era. Its uppers use a fruity mix of light and dark blue, pink, red, purple, maroon, and peach pink – all in patent leather. UNDEFEATED’s ‘five strike’ logo appears on the tongue and heel, and their wordmark is remade into large dubrae, another element reminiscent of a bygone era. Continuing this stylistic throwback is the ice outsoles, which are now tinted more blue to prevent the premature yellowing that older AF-1 releases can be prone to. The reverence for the model is made very clear on the insoles, with an allover graphic depicting the shoe surrounding another ‘five strike’ logo.
