In celebration of its 40th Anniversary, Nike Sportswear will be recalling its timeline with this special edition Air Force 1 Mid for the occasion.
This offering of the Nike Air Force 1 Mid features a Cream textile canvas base with Tan leather overlays, Black leather Swooshes atop a Sail midsole and Tan rubber outsole. Highlighting the shoe is a removable timeline receipt on the tongues detailing each design from the beginning to present. Other notable details includes an embroidered Star/Swoosh motifs at the left shoe’s lateral ankle while the right displays a playful beaver illustration that also appears on the insoles – possible nod to Beaverton, OR, where the shoes were made, and Vietnam, where the shoes were manufactured. Finishing touches includes cork material used in the rear.
