Nike Redesigns The Classic Air Force 1 Adding Pixel Detail
The next addition to the Air Force 1 family is about to launch.
You wouldn’t believe that the original Nike Air Force 1 mid silhouette released in 1982. Designed by Bruce Kilgore, AF1s were the first Nike basketball sneaker with air technology, available in a mid and high version. These classics began gaining traction in 2002 after being featured in the Nelly track “Air Force Ones” named after the staple sneaker. They have been growing in popularity ever since, making them a must-have sneaker.
Nike has released multiple redesigns and additions to this essential sneaker, but this time they have added something new. Meet the Air Force 1 Pixel. Sticking with the simple and sleek all-white colorway, this silhouette serves distorted features like the midsole which uses angular details.
Our favorite part is the oversized heel tab which suits the new geometric “NIKE” and “AF1” graphic design. The outsole offers a chunkier look, which gives it a mean side profile with distorted material with the Nike tick. The design team has also reduced several perforations on the toe box, but this still means you can’t create them!
Nike’s Air Force 1 Pixel in the classic white colorway will retail at $100 USD and will be launched via Nike on 22 October. Anyone else counting down the days?
