The end of 2022 is the only thing that will slow down The Swooshes Air Force 1 silhouette as it celebrates its 40th anniversary. With only a few months left in the year, the Beaverton-based brand is putting out colorways left and right. The latest one has a set of colors that look like the New England Patriots team colors.
This shoe is perfect for anyone who desires comfy shoes with style
Different from its basketball roots, the model’s upper leather panels are all dipped in a rich grey color, which was inspired by the colors of a Boston-based team. Along with the grey vertical spine, laces, and tongue, the Swoosh, heel counter, and nylon ankle strap all have Navy Blue accents. The outsole is also the same color as the rest of the shoe. The midsole and tongue tag are a snow-white color, and there are just a few small touches of red on the stitched Swoosh and wrapped “AIR” logos to finish off the Patriots look.
Overall, the New England Patriots AF1 High is a big change from the bold statement Nike made with the shoe’s first colorway. The grey, Navy Blue, and white colorway goes well together, and it’s great that the sneaker pays tribute to another sport.
