Since the 1980s, the Nike Air Force 1 has been reinvented in hundreds of different styles. Most recently, Bruce Kilgore’s iconic design has emerged with swoosh-shaped carabiners at the profiles, ostensibly tapping into the brand’s outdoors-obsessed segment.
On its own, the latest Air Force 1 Low doesn’t deviate much from some of its most recognizable colorways, donning a predominantly “White” and “Black” arrangement, but detailing on and near the tongue works in-tandem with the aforementioned utilitarian tool at the sidewalls to add yet another tally to the sneaker’s experimental catalog. The “Habanero Red”-colored carabiner is held in place on the lateral sides via a series of elastic loops, sporting an ACRONYM-reminiscent aesthetic in the process. No word’s been disclosed just yet, but it’s possible this AF-1 is part of a more expansive Nike Sportswear collection donning swoosh-shaped attachments.
A firm Nike.com release date hasn’t been confirmed by the brand, but that’s likely to change as summertime inches closer. In the meantime, enjoy official images of the pair ahead.
