The Air Force 1 is arguably the most iconic sneaker silhouette of all time. It’s been dressed in almost every color combination imaginable, but we’ve never seen one quite like this.
Continuing with their “Move to Zero” initiative, Nike has chosen the Air Force 1 to be the next to receive a sustainable facelift. This “Crater Foam” pair is composed almost entirely of recycled materials, and it’s not afraid to show it.
The tongue, side, and heel panels of the sneaker are clad in “Pure Platinum.” The upper is contrasted by “Barely Volt” leather Swooshes on the lateral and medial sides, as well as the heel tab. The “Crater Foam” midsole comes dressed in a crisp light blue, with small bits of multicolored “Nike Grind” peeking through.
The toebox is the star of the show. Its translucent panel gives way to a multicolored pattern underneath, creating a stained glass-like effect. The forefoot panel is adorned with “Summit White” contrast stitching to amplify the colors.
The Air Force 1 “Crater Foam” will be available on JimmyJazz.com on October 1st for a retail price of $110.
The Air Force 1 “Crater Foam” is a relatively loud sneaker, so we think it would be best to pair it with more subtle outfits. Styles from Nike’s Move to Zero apparel collection should do the trick.
For the first outfit, start with the Nike Sportswear Short Sleeve Jersey Top. This sustainably-crafted t-shirt comes in a soft grey color that will compliment the upper of the sneaker perfectly. The grey color palate will also allow the vibrant toebox to shine. Pair the t-shirt with a pair of Nike Sportswear Joggers in the “Pure” colorway. These predominantly white joggers offer great contrast to the mostly grey color scheme of the outfit. These joggers also feature Nike branding comprised of recycled “Nike Grind,” to tie into the theme of the collection.
For the second outfit, start with the Nike Sportswear Full-Zip Hoodie in “Pure.” This sweatshirt is comprised of an ultra-soft recycled cotton and polyester blend, and features a recycled “Nike Grind” logo on the chest. The athletic look of the hoodie should pair nicely with the Nike Sportswear Club Fleece Tie-Dye Pants. These jogger pants feature a colorful tie-dye pattern throughout that will contrast the white hoodie well. The combination of colors will also highlight the colorful toebox of the sneaker. Tapered ankle cuffs provide a nice lift to maintain that athletic look.
