Carhartt WIP and Nike work in collaboration to design a capsule full of footwear designs -- one of the highlighting pieces in the series is the new iteration of the signature Air Force 1 silhouette. The latest version boasts elements that are true to Carhartt WIP's workwear nature whilst still retaining the foundation design of the classic model. The new construction sees a mix of both corduroy materials and duck canvas over the uppers in muted earthy tones of brown and tan.

The uppers boast an inspiration drawn from utility aesthetics and it is translated through the flat weaving laces, the bronzey metal eyelets, snap buttons, fleece lining in the interior, and a nubuck pull tab at the back. It is rounded out with co-branding details over the tongue and set to drop on December 6th.
