The Nike Air Force 1 Low, a sneaker that has stood the test of time, continues to make waves in the sneaker realm even 40 years after its initial debut. As we approach 2024, this iconic silhouette has taken a step back from the vibrant ensembles of summer and embraced a more subdued color palette. In its latest iteration, the sneaker that has been dubbed the “presidential” sneaker now showcases shades of “Light Smoke Grey,” giving a fresh twist to its original “Metallic Silver” look.
Maintaining its signature Air Force 1 style, the shoe’s base layers feature a sleek leather construction. However, the profile swooshes and Achilles’ Heel panels take a departure from the norm with a darker shade and a luxurious suede material, injecting some personality into this otherwise toned-down pair. The branding on the tongue label and sockliners follow suit, featuring the same dark tone, while the surrounding areas maintain a light and airy feel.
When it comes to the sole, Bruce Kilgore’s iconic design for basketball performance remains unchanged, perfectly complementing the upper. The midsole, with its distinct “Air” branding, opts for a clean “White” finish, directing all attention to the mesmerizing top-half of the shoe. What sets this grey Air Force 1 apart is the semi-translucent, milky makeover given to its radial traction. This design choice has been seen on other Nike Sportswear options in the past, including the notable “Bronx Origins” AF1 released in October 2022.
While we eagerly await the official release, let’s take pleasure in browsing through the official photos of this stylish pair. Priced at $135 USD, the “Light Smoke Grey” Air Force 1 is definitely a must-have for sneaker enthusiasts and collectors alike.
For all the sneakerheads out there, keep an eye out for the Air Jordan 4 “Olive,” set to make its much-anticipated debut in mid-November.
