Over the past few years, we’ve seen thousands of sneakers inspired by some pretty strange stuff. That said, for the first time ever a pair that pays homage to the rigorous quality control process has surfaced with the Nike Air Force 1 High EMB "Phantom Elemental Gold." Dropping as part of the “Inspected By Swoosh” Collection, these are set to launch alongside an Air Force 1 Low and a Blazer Mid.
Taking things back to basics, the first thing that you’ll notice about these AF 1 Highs is just how clean they are. Crafted from textured leather across the upper, the base arrives in white while phantom panels embrace the ankle, heel, lacing system, and toecap. A velcro-fastened strap around the collar is dipped in an elemental gold hue, while a bold green D-ring throws back to the manufacturing process. This all sits on top of a dark gum rubber outsole, and to round off the themed sneaker, it quite literally gets the Swoosh’s stamp of approval on the custom insoles, complete with a signature to sign off on quality control.
The Nike Air Force 1 High EMB Phantom Elemental Gold is set to release on December 1st, 2022. It will drop at Nike as well as retailers worldwide, both in-store and online. Coming in men's sizing, retail is set at $135. Keep it locked to our Twitter andMobile App to stay up to date on future releases.
