The Nike Air Force 1 Shadow Gets a Pixilated Swoosh
Over the years, the Nike Air Force 1 has received many makeovers, crazy reinterpretations, and new looks. Of those new renditions, the Air Force 1 Shadow hit the streets last year for all those who dig superimposed panels on their creps. After doubling down on a slew of layered colour combos, Nike have moved in a different direction, opting for an all-black look and pixilated Swoosh.
Dubbed the ‘Pixel’, this pair comes recently after the League of Legends–inspired sneakers hit shelves, and it looks as though the crew over at Beaverton are wanting to continue with the video game concept. Although an audacious build, Nike have toned the colourway right down, opting for all over black, with the medial Swoosh and collar receiving orange splashes. The pixelated Swoosh lays on the lateral side, sitting above a plastic wrap-around heel detail that features Air branding, and also looks to be inspired by older video game fonts.
Is the Nike Air Force 1 Shadow ‘Pixel’ related to the previous video game–inspired pack that Nike brought out? Only time will tell! While you wait, check out the official pics above, and expect this bad boy to hit select Swoosh stockists over the coming few months.
