In the latest drop from the Nike Basketball Holiday 2023 Collection, we have the Air Max Force 1 Mid. This sneaker is a perfect combination of timeless heritage and experimental design, sure to catch the eye of sneakerheads everywhere.

Drawing inspiration from the iconic “presidential” design re-imagined by the late Virgil Abloh, the Air Max Force 1 Mid features a sleek tumbled leather upper in a striking pitch-black finish. The profile swooshes take on a cut-out style, revealing a wavy textile version of Nike’s renowned logo. Not only does the branding on the tongue label and spine deviate from the norm, but the classic ankle straps of the Air Force 1 Mid also make a faithful appearance.

It all started back in 1982 when the legendary Bruce Kilgore and Nike Basketball introduced Air cushioning to the hardwood, a groundbreaking innovation that would shape the sneaker industry. Now, the modified Air Force 1 brings that history to the forefront by showcasing the industry-changing cushioning units in the forefoot and rearfoot. The surrounding midsole is fashioned in an off-white hue, creating a striking contrast with the black upper and outsole. Traction is taken care of with an understated color scheme, but with a clever nod to the Air Max Plus, boasting a series of dimples corresponding to the Air pillars above.

Unfortunately, Nike has yet to release specific details about the launch on their official website. However, word on the street is that we can expect an announcement soon. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the official photos of this stunning pair.
