Uptowns, Forces, Harlems, White-on-White’s. Whatever way you choose to name them, the Bruce Kilgore designed Nike Air Force 1 has undoubtedly become one of the figurehead shoes of the brand. First hitting the hardwood in 1982, the revolutionary creation featured a new pivot point system on the outsole, designed to help quick turning on the court.
Championed by Allstars like Rasheed Wallace, Kobe Bryant, and most famously Moses Malone (one of the original poster boys for the shoe) it later found notoriety on the streets as a statement piece in any outfit. Of all the colour combinations and transformations it’s gone through over the years, it’s still the archetype which has stood the test of time and is still highly revered today. Since its birth the Air Force 1 has never stopped evolving, the iconic design has undergone subtle updates to reflect the current moment, and this season we see the icon landing in a colour palette in tune with the autumnal season.
Originally inspired by the Nike Approach hiking boot and for their next instalment, Nike’s Air Force 1 ’07 Premier Low gets a food-inspired makeover. Inspired by the colours of the Chinese ‘Beef and Broccoli’ dish, this iteration of the Air Force 1 arrives in a ‘Baroque Brown’ and ‘Army Olive’ colourway. The updated silhouette’s upper is crafted from a blend of premium materials – durable olive canvas covers most of the model, with panels of premium and hardwearing brown suede arriving on the perforated toe-cap, eye stays and midfoot Swoosh. Completing the sneaker with boot-styled detailing, the pair comes complete with a brass top eyelet and a set of rounded rope laces.
