The Air Force 1 is one of Nike’s retro silhouettes getting a bit of a makeover this year, the ex-basketball sneaker being equipped with new-age React foam. The colourways are fairly conservative so far, evidenced by this upcoming black and white edition.
The leather and mesh upper is pretty tame, and white contrasting sections are textbook touches. It’s not a boring sneaker though, as hints of blue and red are just enough to keep things visually interesting.
Of course, the proof is in the wearing, as the new React update is said to be very comfortable. Find out for yourself when these hit retail later this year.
