A fresh, deconstructed take on a streetwear staple, Nike take aim at the Air Force 1 to showcase an experimental vision of contemporary sneaker design.
Taking a deconstructive tact, Nike turn their attentions toward a staple of their sneaker range, the Air Force 1. A mainstay of basketball style, the low top footwear silhouette is at home on the streets as it is on the court. Viewed through an experimental lens, Nike redefine the model with an esoteric take on conventional sneaker aesthetics.
Featuring an ensemble cast of finely tuned details, expertly applied deconstructive techniques ensure that the sneaker is replete with a bold patchwork look. Predominantly cast in Summit White, pops of coral red and velvet blue hit to the side wall and tongue for a twist on the classic AF1 colourway. To the heel, a velcro strap adds a touch of regimented utilitarianism, while a rugged rubber bumper to the front midsole proffers a further boost of durability and resilient style.
The biggest twist comes in the removal of Nike's signature Swoosh logo from the exterior side wall - an offering that subverts contemporary sneaker aesthetics to showcase the process of sneaker construction. Capitalising on a movement into the avant-garde realm, Nike's sneaker style continues to provide a revelation of modernity and sporting prowess.
