How many remixes of the nike air force 1
are we going to get this year? Nike Sportswear has been updating Bruce Kilgore’s iconic retro basketball creation in more ways than we can count whether it’s through high-concept collaborations with ACRONYM, streetwear-ready takedowns in incredibly limited runs like the recently released VLONE offering, or a teched out look that’s more ready than ever to hit the runway in the Nike Air Force 1 Tech Craft, recently unveiled at NYFW by fashion label Rochambeau.
Today we get a look at yet another update with the nike air max zero
Tech Craft Low, as the luxurious remix features Jacquard-like panels on the toecap, minimal eyelets to match the premium leather, additional ventilations on the side panel, and that’s just the start of where this AF1 takes a turn for the modern. Also included is an updated sockliner, a unique lifestyle-inspired ankle collar and heel tab, and a lower tongue with a leather tongue label featuring embossed ‘Nike Air’ branding. A Black colorway will be available for men’s this Spring 2017 season followed by an off-white Sail/Gum women’s offering.
The story behind the nike air max 1
has been passed down from sneakerhead to sneakerhead for generations. It’s a tale of how an unlikely spark of inspiration became a global sports and style juggernaut, and a testament to Nike designers Tinker Hatfield and Mark Parker’s forward-thinking minds.According to equally iconic Nike designer and resident Nike historian Wilson Smith, the Air Max 1’s visible window became a point of contention between Parker and Hatfield. During a recent trip to Nike’s headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, Smith led us on a behind-the-scenes tour at DNA, the Department of Nike Archives, where the Swoosh keeps all its innovations hidden in an off-campus location.
