Flight jackets have been in vogue for decades, so it was inevitable that the ubiquitous olive and orange quilted nylon garment found its way onto feet. The theme is seen clearly here on a new Nike Air Force 1.
The upper is entirely olive sheen nylon, with the toe box and mid panel displaying a quilted stitch pattern. For contrast, the lining is orange – exactly like a flight jacket. The tongue is sturdy ballistic-weave nylon, matched to the round woven laces. To break up the colours, a dark gum sole appears, along with reflective Swoosh borders.
And, interestingly enough, the tongue label appears to be inverted. Coming soon to Nike retailers.
