In addition to reissuing the Nike Air Force 1 in original styles, the Swoosh has prepped experimental takes of Bruce Kilgore’s iconic design for its 40th anniversary celebration.
While not entirely new, the women’s PLT.AF.ORM iteration of the model originally designed for basketball gives the pair a fashion-forward aesthetic. Exaggerated sole units worn in-tandem with rearranged panels throughout the upper, non-standard materials and experimental color-blocking. The latest proposition indulges in a number of spring-friendly pastels, with the suede overlays along the tongue and at the upper heel area boasting debossed leopard print patterns. Akin to some of the brand’s “vintage” re-releases of Kilgore’s world-famous Air Force 1, the upcoming drop features an off-white sole unit that allows for the aforementioned components to revel that much more in the spotlight.
Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a Nike.com launch soon.
