NIKE AIR FORCE 1 DOWNTOWN NRG “ZEBRA”

with one comment

zebra

The ’80s was an era in which style originated from the local galleria, which in turn took its cues from the primped and crimped day-glo looks of the personalities on MTV. For our purposes, the 1980s is the decade that spawned one of the most iconic models from Nike‘s archive. The Air Force 1 is celebrating its 30th birthday this year, and this glossy Downtown style seemingly pays tribute to the stylistic epoch in which it was born. Featuring a black patent leather vamp with hits of purple at the midsole and leather lining, the shoe takes the New Wave aesthetic one step farther with a zebra-print quarter

2013 is the Year of the Snake. So it would only make sense for the Air Force 1 with the all snakeskin upper treatment. These cold-blooded kicks will be set free on the 18th of december, 2012 at CONCRETE.

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 HOMAGE TO US PRESIDENTIAL PRIVATE JET

leave a comment »

With the name Air Force 1, it was only logical that Nike pay homage to the presidential aircraft of the same name with the special Air Force 1 Presidential Edition. Following weeks of previews and teasers, we can now give you a proper look at the shoe courtesy of Nike. Crafted from premium leather, the shoe features a two-tone leather ankle strap, a U.S. flag patch, reflective detailing, and dimples inspired by the rivets on the plane. Taking the concept further, the upper’s surface lies flat in a nod to the smooth fuselage of the presidents Boeing VC-25. The shoe’s midsole incorporates the matte light blue and gold coloring seen on the plane. The shoe is set to launch this month in very limited quantities.
