The Nike Air Force 1 Warms Up with Sherpa FleeceRelease: TBC
Following recent news of an Air Jordan 1 Low decked-out in Sherpa fleece, images have now emerged of a Nike Air Force 1 that’s received similar treatment. Clearly intended for cold conditions, this Uptown also features the plush fleece on sections of the upper – mid panel and heel panel – which means you’ll need to be careful where you take these.
Despite that risk, other elements of this AF-1 look built for the outdoors, including ripstop material on the side Swooshes, and toggles on the laces. There’s even that orange and blue colour combo that conjures memories of the ACG range.
When the Air Force 1 debuted on the hardwood back in 1982, it was the first Nike basketball shoe to feature ‘Air’ cushioning. The AF-1 has since evolved into more of a lifestyle option than performance baller, highlighted by the fact it was the USA’s top-selling sneaker for the first half of 2021. Part of that enduring appeal has been the silhouette’s ability to reinvent itself with slight tweaks – including this plush option.
Pairs of this super cosy Air Force 1 are expected to hit Nike and selected Swoosh stockists very soon.
