Nike introduces its new pack of sneakers that celebrate the design of its iconic Air Force 1 silhouette with wear-away design elements over time. The sneaker arrives in monochromatic options of either the colorway 'black pack' or 'white and vachetta tan.'
The uppers are made from soft and supple leather material as the black iteration boasts an upper of entirely black. The wear-away detailing can be found at the heel tab and the Swoosh on the side of the shoe, which will turn into a brown color after time. The second colorway already features the brown hue at the Swoosh and the heel with no additional wear needed to present the hue. Additional details include the golden color at the metal lace tips and the top eyelets.
