Tapping the City That Never Sleeps, Nike infuse a basketball classic and NYC charm with a duo of Air Force 1 Mid QS Jewel sneakers.
A celebration of New York City's basketball heritage, Nike dedicate their latest pair of Air Force 1 sneakers to the Big Apple with this "Jewel" pack. Embellished with stitched "NYC" text and ankle straps, the Beaverton brand's iconic silhouette is subtly transformed into an ode to the American metropolis.
Originally designed for the hardwood in 1982 by Bruce Kilgore, the Air Force 1 continually remains at the forefront of Nike's sneaker offering. A classic brimming with potential and subcultural appeal, the American sportswear stalwarts encapsulate quintessential basketball style with this duo of kicks.
Cast in Cool Grey and White respectively, both styles draw inspiration from the late '90s and early '00s with jewel swooshes that adorn the lateral side walls of the sneakers for a flourish of retro charm. Air cushioned midsoles round off the sporting model's practical outlook, while their smooth leather uppers and chunky frame further elucidate why the Air Force 1 has become the cultural emblem that it is today - a favourite amongst celebrities, streetwear aficionados and sneakerheads alike.
