When images originally came forth of the white-out SF AF1 we were ecstatic, a perfect update to a classic silhouette. Doused in paracord and ballistic nylon they are certainly one rugged shoe – and as the name and materials suggest one with a strong military inspiration. The classic ankle strap has been given a tough makeover with paracord woven using the cobra weave technique and is used to fasten the ultra-high collar, previously seen on releases such as the ACRONYM AF1.
Rumoured to be exclusive to ComplexCon the White/White Special Forces Air Force 1 will see a wider release on December the 8th at selected Nike Sportswear retail locations (not confirmed for AU stores). We’ll be keeping an eye on Nike.com for any updates as to whether they will go online.
UPDATE – Releasing as a Quickstrike at Subtype, Highs and Lows, LACED December 8th
