Nike Air Force 1 High
Almost every element of this AF1 High is black, giving it a sleek, sophisticated appearance. This includes the entire sole unit, which is formed of an outsole with pivot-circle grip patterns and a midsole that has Air lettering emerging from its lateral heel. Concealed within the midsole behind this text is a pouch of Air to support the back of the foot, while foam cushioning pads out the rest.
Smooth black leather has been used to create the upper, with classic overlays in the forefoot and heel, midfoot panels with pairs of perforations to add to those in the toe box and an eyestay that extends all the way up to the top of the high collar. This helps to steady the ankle, and a removable strap wraps around it to make things even sturdier. Black swooshes adorn the sidewalls, adding a polished look to the flanks, and the heel panel that they both connect to is embroidered with Nike Air lettering in the same hue.
Bringing a shiny splash of color to this refined sneaker is a silver lace dubrae indented with AF1 text. Branded labels have been sewn into the tongue, once again in all-black, and the inside of the shoe is made up of soft black padding. The insole is also dark in tone, though a white crest stands out upon it. On the right shoe, this large emblem sits under the heel of the foot and contains the words “Nike Air” and “Air Force 1” in black. Meanwhile, the left foot has a smaller motif with the number 82 on its lateral midfoot to signify the year that the AF1 line began, thus rounding out the model by honoring its incredible history.
