Premium Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Panda” Appears
The Air Force 1 Mid is back in high demand, with the cut-down take of the 40-year-old sneaker set for a big year ahead in 2022. Collaborations from Stussyand OFF-WHITE will lead the charge, but there are plenty of premium mainline releases piling up — including this premium-built Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Panda” for Spring.
A specialist Chinese theme on the insoles and outsoles shows a collage of texts, imagery, and more, inclusive of the titular Panda bear, basketballs, Air Force 1 boxes, and even a staple black and white (panda) Air Force 1 Mid. While this colorful concoction of cut-outs is retained in the soles, the upper reports to something more reserved; a direct mimic of the titular mammal’s appearance. Here its faux cream furs, tonal suede eyestay overlays, and creamy tongues and laces working with shaggy black suede overlays, black leather lateral Checks, and medial jewel Swooshes to mimic the beast. Aside from the aforementioned Swooshes, the upper remains brandless, forgoing the traditional strap, heel, and tongue stitching — and even omitting the silhouette’s signature dubraes.
A release date for this Nike Air Force 1 “Panda” is yet to be revealed but with official images for these now available, one would suggest that a release is happening very soon —likely as an Asian exclusive.
