The Nike Air Force 1 Shadow Doubles Down on the DetailsRelease: 3 October 2019
After nearly 35 years in the game, the Nike Air Force 1 is showing no signs of decline. In fact, it’s balling twice as hard as ever, thanks to emergence of the Air Force 1 Shadow – a modern makeover sure to excite the lovers of all things layered.
The team from Beaverton saw double with this adventurous concept, inspired by the idea of ‘double vision’ to create an idiosyncratic addition to the AF-1 roster. Blessed with an adventurous palette, each rendition features Swooshes and midsole patches that create a psychedelic ‘shadow’ effect. The doubled-down detailing doesn’t stop there, as the mudguard and eyestay come beefed up with extra layers. Meanwhile, the top eyelet is tweaked to appear detached, elevating the haphazard DIY vibes.
Dropping in a variety of colourways, the Air Force 1 Shadow forgoes darker shades, flipping the script on its name via pleasing pastel hues and energetic colour-blocking. No matter which one you rock, you’ll have onlookers doing a double take.
