This Air Force 1 Comes Coated in Muslin Canvas
We’ve spoken extensively on the Air Force 1‘s ability to reinvent itself —each time in a seemingly new way. But this time around it is new, with the pair sporting a Muslin Canvas coating, all the way down to the sneaker’s outsole.
The sneaker adorns a tonal light tan colorway, which puts the focus entirely on the materials used. In this instance, rugged canvas flows down onto the midsole, adding an extra layer of style and accenting the thick stitch that’s present. The only variance from the single-colored style appears on the tongue, where the normal stitched-on patch is replaced by a white print and the heel, which is adorned by an embroidered two-stroke detail on the heel. More special detailing also arrives on the heel via an embroidered NYC graphic that any long-time Air Force 1 fan is sure to be familiar with, as well as a flowing, repetitive, hand-written “newyorkcity” cursive adorns the insoles.
Esteemed New York vintage curators Procell have teased a possible collaborative project with Nike around the shoe — taking to their Instagram to show off boxes with painted detailing that matches the aforementioned tongue badge — so stay tuned for more info on these compelling Forces as it’s available.
What we do know, however, is that this pair will release on March 18th for $100 at select stores and online at Nike.com
