It’s almost that time of year for Cupid to start taking aim at his chosen targets, and it seems the Nike Air Force 1 is in his sights in 2020. The timeless silhouette is getting all dressed up for Valentine’s Day this year, rocking an upper that’s littered with tiny Swooshes that appear in muted hues of pink and mint – reminiscent of sweetheart candies. The same pastel shades are also featured on mismatched heels, tongues and insoles, with the latter two sporting bold red hearts that have been skewered by one Swoosh each.
After all that loved-up detail, ‘U* Complete Me’ is written on each insole, leaving no doubt about the inspiration behind this sugar-sweet colourway. Inside tip: maybe scratch that asterisk off if you’re planning on giving these AF-1s to your special someone, Valentine’s Day is not really the time for ambiguity.
These beauties definitely don’t belong on our list of the 5 Sneakers Not to Wear on a First Date.
An exact release date hasn’t been revealed just yet, but you’d expect these to drop via Nike within the next two weeks – in the lead up to Valentine’s Day.
