Robert Kraft is Celebrated with the New Nike Air Force 1

— October 11, 2022 — Fashion
Nike introduces a new design update of the Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Low sneaker model and this time around, it is made to honor the New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft. He has led the NFL team for the past 28 years and the special-edition shoes are made from breathable materials throughout the upper.

It features Flyknit materials along with a suede heel tab that is marked with embroidered branding. His initials of R.K.K. is seen printed along the steel lace dubraes. Additional details include the Super Bowl Trophy motif in a metallic touch on the tongue tabs. Rounding out the look is the red accenting line wrapping around the top of the midsole base and dual tonal rubber outsole.
