Arguably one of the most iconic pieces of footwear Nike have produced, the Air Force 1 has become a firm favourite in the wardrobes of many since its inception in the 80’s. The combination of style and function means the Air Force 1 survives year after year, while the original white-on-white design is the perfect blank canvas for the numerous recreations the shoe has seen over the years.
The latest reinvention of the Air Force 1 would be that of the Utility pack. Deconstruction sits at the forefront of this trainer’s design aesthetic; a squeaky clean canvas is decorated only with contrasting yet understated Nike branding. An exposed label tag can be found layered under the soft leather Swoosh (perhaps as a subtle nod to their upcoming collaborative partner Off Whites’ take on the shoe), while a double branded heel-pull and tongue label are home to an inconspicuous splash of colour. All of this sits upon a textured leather upper, with a full length foam midsole that has cushioned our feet for decades.
