For the most part, TikTok’s contribution has been cringeworthy. It has, however, provided us with some gems on occasion. For the sneaker brands, the manner in which the Air Jordan 1 “Obsidian” took over the platform aided in the eventual hype for the release. The same went for the tear-away Air Force 1s from early last year. The can’t-look-away customizing videos blew up, putting the two or three options that released last year in the unattainable category. With the market screaming for the sneaker, Nike would naturally continue into 2021 with more tear-away takes — and today we get our first glimpse at the year’s freshman release.
Boasting underlays far more rugged when compared to its colorful, smooth-leathered predecessors, this Tear-Away Air Force 1 Low “Fauna Brown” bears fabrics and colors out of the assumed norm. Underneath an unassuming all-white tear-off upper, we see thick weaves and burlaps work in the tan and brown realms. Smooth leathers of the tongue tag and rear overlays opt for a dark chocolate flavor, with its accents in “Arctic Punch” joining the tumbled leather Swoosh in hue. Completing the design is the customary Riddler-like graphic insoles and an unadulterated Air Force 1 sole unit in all-white.
