The Nike Air Force 1 Delivers a Bolt from the Blue
Release: TBC

The Nike Air Force 1 is about to deliver a bolt from the blue after emerging in an upcoming rendition that wears lightning bolts for side Swooshes. The theme mirrors the Air Max 90 that was spotted earlier this month, using a white and ‘Off Noir’ base before adding pops of ‘Aquamarine’ and ‘Lime Glow’ to provide some colour.

The tongues also sport lightning bolt Swooshes, alongside special ‘20/21’ branding, while mini Swooshes on the forefoot add another special touch. That mini Swoosh addition might have a few observers wondering if it will be an emerging trend for the Air Force 1, after the same adornment was added to the recently unveiled ‘Metallic Gold’ trio

The AF-1’s bold evolution from 1980s baller to omnipresent lifestyle model ensures it remains a key member of today’s sneaker zeitgeist, its seemingly timeless aesthetic still getting the job done almost 40 years after its initial release. The Air Force 1 sure has built a strong reputation over those years, and regularly delivers both collaborative and GR heat.

Pairs of this new Air Force 1 are expected to strike soon at Nike and selected Swoosh stockists.
