Bruce Kilgore’s iconic Nike Air Force 1 proved that it was a timeless basketball performance model – just ask Rasheed Wallace. The man played in a model over two decades old at the peak of his career (granted ‘Sheed wasn’t known for his quick cuts nor did he need a lightweight performer). That being said, the lifestyle legend has since been retired on-court and instead has given us a number of premium leather options throughout 2016. The latestNikeLab collection takes the Nike Air Force 1 Low to task in two beautiful monochromatic leather options slated to arrive later this month.
The Air Force 1 Low benefits from an icy bottom, a nice touch that adds an underlying red Nike Swoosh branding for a premium albeit almost hidden feature. The real call to action here is the all leather upper paired with a leather lining in either a royal blue or a deep maroon. Those two colorway options are bold enough to stand out, but when paired with a white midsole, the simple and refined silhouette showcases its perfect for any occasion.
