The Nike Air Force 1 is one of those rare sneakers that is pretty much perfect. However, its versatility welcomes experimental upgrades and updates, such as this latest trio that is exclusive to JD Sports Australia.
It delivers a menagerie of interesting details – some more obvious than others. The starkest switch up is perhaps the scooped Swooshes, leaving a reflective-filled gap that shines up when hit by light, leading to the heel tab. This is where Nike Air branding is usually found, but instead it’s been relocated to the lateral forefoot area.
Staying up front, textured toe bumpers add reinforcement to the tip (not that the tank-like AF-1 needed extra help) and up the scuff protection. On the opposite end, pull-tabs on the heel make putting these on a delight; the nylon tongues only add to the pleasure.
