The iconic Nike Air Alpha Force 88 has made a triumphant return, this time in its original “White/University Red/Black” colorway. But that’s not all – this classic sneaker is now targeting lifestyle-oriented ensembles, giving sneakerheads even more reason to rejoice.
In a nod to the fall season, the Air Alpha Force 88 has emerged in a stunning “Red Stardust” and “Sanddrift” color combination. While staying true to Tinker Hatfield’s original blueprint from decades ago, this latest iteration opts for soft suede instead of perforated leather on the upper. Don’t worry, though, the lockdown straps at the vamp, TPU eyestays along the tongue, and fabric collar areas are all present, bringing that timeless 1980s design into the modern era.
The majority of the top-half is dominated by the captivating “Red Stardust” hue, but the Air Force branding on the tongue adds a delightful pop of contrast in stark black and orange. To complete the look, the sneaker features an old school beige finish on the sole unit, perfectly complementing the upper and solidifying its status as a compelling choice for casual wear even after 35 years since its debut.
Fans of the Air Alpha Force 88 can look forward to its official launch on nike.com in the coming months. Priced at $130 USD, it’s a small price to pay for a piece of sneaker history.
For those keeping up with the latest Nike Basketball news, the LeBron 21 has already made its debut ahead of the 2023-24 NBA season. This means there’s even more hype and anticipation building within the sneaker community.
