Customized Nike Air Force 1 Low pairs have become businesses for a lot of people around the world in the past few years.
Old and fresh make this sneaker cool
During the 2000s, perhaps in response to A Bathing Ape’s many-colored BAPE STAs, the Swoosh offered its famous 1982 silhouette in hundreds of new ways. In the middle of its 40th anniversary, Bruce Kilgore’s legendary creation is still experimenting with color blocking, materials, and themes. The latest idea seems to be a nod to the mid-2000s. Shiny black patent leather covers the entire shoe from the middle of the foot to the tip of the toe. Smooth panels from the middle of the foot to the spine are colored a light pink. The profile swooshes and the often-copied sole unit are white, which adds contrast. However, the nylon tongues and non-standard branding on the back give the Nike Air Force 1 a fresh look.
When they made this version of the “Air Force” series, Nike probably found the perfect balance. Most of the classic design was kept the same, but a few key things were changed to make this shoe look and feel more modern than earlier versions.
