Another Nike Air Force 1 Low silhouette has been unveiled for the brand’s 40th anniversary, and this iteration adopts the iconic color scheme of Nike’s most popular Dunk silhouette: the ‘Panda.’ The Nike Air Force 1 Low in ‘Retro’ incorporates a black and white design that resembles the ‘Panda,’ transforming the sneaker into a minimalist staple. The pair comes with an all-white base construction, black paneling, and a contrasting white Swoosh. The toe box also adopts the same clean white shade as the base, along with portions of the tongue unit and chunky midsole. The sneaker is finished with a black rubber outsole and Nike ‘AIR’ branding outlined in black at the midsole.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low in ‘Retro’ black and white will debut in the last half of 2022 as a part of Nike’s Fall lineup. The sneaker will be made available at Nike and select retailers.
