A newer proposition under the “NIKE, Inc.” banner, the Nike Air Force 1 Crater Flyknit is seemingly picking up steam ahead of summer as it’s appeared in a new “Black/Volt” colorway.
While rooted in the design D.N.A. of Bruce Kilgore’s 1982 creation, the upcoming offering updates the upper and sole unit for functional and aesthetic purposes. Flyknit construction up-top introduces improved breathability, while the Greater Foam midsole advances the Swoosh conglomerate’s “Move to Zero” sustainability initiative by up-cycling manufacturing floor leftovers. Abstract patterns make up the Air Force 1‘s knit upper, which may allude to the iguana’s camouflage-ready body given the graphic of the reptile on the sock-liners. The sneakers’ color palette and insole graphics allude to a spring or summertime launch, but also tease the possibility of a larger Nike Sportswear Collection with similar details.
No firm Nike.com launch details have been disclosed by the brand yet, but that’s likely to change soon. While you wait, enjoy official images of the pair ahead.
