OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Force 1 Mid 'Black' Official Images
The Nike Air Force 1 is celebrating its 40th birthday in 2022, and with that comes Virgil Abloh's anticipated and intriguing rendition of the silhouette. Having already collaborated on the Air Force 1 Low, Abloh takes his OFF-WHITE imprint to the Air Force 1 Mid. And seems to embrace New York City's affinity with the ever-versatile model, while of course adding his signatures. It is a far cry from the luxurious take of the Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1, but it carries its own effervescence; such as the graffiti-styled AIR typography centered on the tongue, to a reworked midsole but also features cues from Abloh's work on the Nike Dunk, Vapor Street and Terra Kiger – with the addition of a lacelock as the gemstone of the added lacing system. To the track spikes molded onto the toe and medial portions of the cup sole.
The OFF-WHITE x Air Force 1 Mid serves as another foray into Abloh's mind, where we've seen in the past him ponder what the Nike Blazer would look like with an ACG infusion, thanks to the Terra Humara vulcanized onto the heel.
Release of the collaboration has yet to get an official launch date, but as official images always indicate, launch is not far behind. Stay close to Sole-U for further release info.
