Nike Air Force 1 High
This all-white Nike Air Force 1 High has a supportive build to augment its vintage look. The rubber sole provides an excellent foundation via its pivot-circle tread patterns, which lie under both the forefoot and heel. A straight section of grip lines connects the two circular areas beside some Nike lettering and a swoosh. Its edges are lugged at the sides and exhibit star-shaped nodes on the toe and heel for all-round traction. Next, the midsole lends the wearer soft comfort via its Air cushioning, as highlighted by the lettering on its lateral side. Meanwhile, a line of stitching skirts around its top part to separate the cupsole aesthetically from the rest of the shoe.
The upper is composed of pristine white leather that runs through the forefoot and rear overlays, the midfoot panels and the toe box. This last feature has lines of perforations numbering between two and five that form a fan-like pattern across it to enhance the sneaker’s breathability. Just behind this, a silver lace dubrae with AF1 text etched into it brings a certain sheen to the bottom of the white eyestay, while at the other end, the high-cut collar bolsters the ankle with extra padding. A hook-and-loop strap with a convenient patch of Velcro allows the wearer to easily secure the shoe and at the same time affords it a classic look. At the heel, a panel with Nike Air branding has been added, and swooshes extend away from its wavy edges to overlay the sides of the sneaker.
Amongst the puffy white protective material of the inner lining, a gray insole can be seen. On its surface, distinctive branding effects add some final touches to the design, firstly on the right shoe via a crest motif with Nike Air text inside it in white. Lastly, the left insole has a small emblem that sits slightly off center over the midfoot with the number 82 printed inside it to signify the release year of the original AF1 model.
