In 1982, Bruce Kilgore and the Swoosh collaborated on a basketball-specific design that would become a staple of shoe collecting and resale. As the Nike Air Force 1 celebrates its 40th anniversary, it continues to reinvent itself through colorways, materials, and collaborators.

The sneaker recently appeared in an experimental, “do-it-yourself”-style ensemble. The current iteration of Kilgore’s renowned design is predominantly dressed in “White,” with grey-colored profile swooshes highlighted with neon green cross-reminiscent shapes and “random” stitching, the latter also appearing along the tongue but in a highlighter scarlet hue. The branding on the tongue is also in the “Infrared” color, further energizing the otherwise basic attire. To emphasize the experimental look, the words “NIKE” and “JUST DO IT.” are stamped in pixelated font on the lateral heel. Finally, the Air Force 1 Low incorporates a milky hue into the all-“White” midsole.
In terms of style, the neon accents on the latest version of Nike’s Air Force 1 Low give a neutral base some life. And the “Just Do It” Air Force 1 Low is definitely different from the other shoes in the family. It has a simple but eye-catching design that will turn heads on the street.
