A part of the “Inspected By Swoosh” series of NSW sneakers.
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 and Mobile App to stay up to date on future releases.
