The Nike Air Force 1 Gets the Gilt-Edged Treatment
Release: TBC

The legendary Nike Air Force 1 has been given the gilt-edged treatment, with images now circulating of a white and black scheme elevated by carefully applied golden touches. Initially a white AF-1 with black contrast on the side Swooshes, tongue badges, and heel tabs, ‘Metallic Gold’ shimmers around those aforementioned branding points, before also standing alone on the forefoot mini Swooshes and the midsole ‘AIR’ designations. 

Designed by Bruce Kilgore, and debuting in 1982 as the first Nike basketball shoe to feature ‘Air’ cushioning, the Air Force 1 gradually evolved from being a 1980s baller to the omnipresent lifestyle model that it is today. The fact it remains a key member of 2021’s sneaker zeitgeist is testament to the AF-1’s truly timeless aesthetic, which is still getting the job done almost 40 years after its initial release. And it sure has built a strong reputation over those decades, consistently emerging amongst a steady stream of both collaborative and GR heat.

Pairs of this black, white and gold Air Force 1 are expected to hit Nike and selected Swoosh stockists quite soon. Will you go for the Midas touch?
