The Nike Air Force 1 Ultra F.C. is dropping sooner than expected. We last saw the shoe as part of the Cristiano Ronaldo honouring Palais of Speed Pack, and it was our favourite by far. That’s not to discredit its peers — that Zoom Flyknit Spiridon is next level — it’s just that the construction of this AF-1 is special.
Many an Uptown has been dressed in leather, but this one is pieced together with Vac-Tech heat moulding usually found on Nike’s performance football shoes. This not only makes the upper lightweight, but gives it a svelte-looking veneer.
The Nike Air Force 1 Ultra F.C. will be available in the UK from Nike online on June 2.
