The Nike Air Force 1 Gets Another ‘Drew League’ ReleaseRelease: 30 July 2021
The Nike Air Force 1 looks set to receive another ‘Drew League’ release, this time rocking some subtle summer vibes. A Los Angeles–based basketball event founded in 1973, the Drew League fosters community engagement through basketball, and this is certainly not the first time Beaverton has paid homage.
Last year, Team Swoosh commemorated the meaningful sporting enterprise with an uncomplicated take on the AF-1, essentially a ‘Triple White’ rendition with Drew League callouts on the tongues and heels. This time, a summery aesthetic hits the side Swooshes and heel tabs, a matching ‘D’ logo hits the tongues, and the ‘Drew League’ script from last year’s version again runs along the lateral heel.
Landing with a hardwood debut in 1982, the Air Force 1 was the first Nike basketball shoe to feature ‘Air’ cushioning. From those on-court origins, the AF-1 slowly morphed into the lifestyle category, and remains a key member of 2021’s sneaker zeitgeist thanks to its truly timeless aesthetic.
Whispers suggest the latest Nike Air Force 1 ‘Drew League’ will release on July 30, but we’ll let you know if an official date is announced.
