Nowadays, you can pretty much always rely on Nike to put forth a measurable amount of energy behind its classic Air Force 1, and this season the ever-popular model is dropping with an all-red motif. This boisterous rendition has emerged shortly after the Nike Sportswear offering was seen recently ornamented with a “3M Snake” theme.
The presentation on these low top lifestyle-ready kicks is simple-yet-striking as you will — from an external perspective — find these AF1 Lows completely submerged in a “University Red” hue. Everything from the leather uppers to the Air-branded midsoles to the treading features the “Triple Red” aesthetic, and in turn, certainly evokes memories of Kanye West’s iconic Nike Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” that launched by surprise in 2014. Branded “Nike Air” is found in their usual spots across the tongues, heels, and on the insoles, the former of which is tonally executed while the latter stands out in solid black.
Given that the month of February is just around the corner, it makes sense as to why the Swoosh team would launch such a colorway as it surely fits in with the narrative surrounding the forthcoming Valentine’s Day celebration.
If interested in picking up a pair, it’s available now via Nike Japan, but a stateside drop is expected to come soon as well.
In case you missed it, official images of the Nike Dunk Low “Medium Curry” have emerged.
