The Nike Air Force 1 Low, a timeless classic from the brand, continues to make waves in the sneaker world despite its initial debut 40 years ago. As we approach 2024, this iconic silhouette has embraced a more subdued color palette, leaving behind the vibrant ensembles of summer. In its latest iteration, the “presidential” sneaker takes on shades of “Light Smoke Grey,” giving a fresh twist to its original “Metallic Silver” look.
The base layers of the shoe feature a sleek leather construction, staying true to the signature Air Force 1 style. However, the profile swooshes and Achilles’ Heel panels deviate from the norm with a darker shade and a luxurious suede material, injecting some personality into this otherwise muted pair. The branding on the tongue label and sockliners also follows suit, featuring the same dark tone, but 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, seamlessly complementing the upper. The midsole, with its “Air” branding, opts for a clean “White” finish, allowing the attention to remain on 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 made appearances on other Nike Sportswear options in the past, with the notable “Bronx Origins” AF1 from October 2022 being one of them.
While you eagerly await the official release, take pleasure in browsing through the official photos of this stylish pair. The “Light Smoke Grey” Air Force 1 is priced at $135 USD, making it a must-have for sneaker enthusiasts and collectors alike.
