Unless you've been living under a rock for the past ten months, you'd know that 2022 marks 40 years since the Nike Air Force 1 made its official debut. To celebrate this massive milestone, the Beaverton-based brand has been dropping a ton of special edition colorways, but the upcoming Nike Air Force 1 Low Command Force "Summit White Hyper Royal" has got to be one of our favorites. Taking design cues from one of the most iconic '90s basketball shoes ever made, if you can only cop one pair of Forces, make sure it's this one.
In case you didn't already know, this Air Force 1 pays homage to the Air Command Force from 1991. Famously worn by former San Antonio Spurs center David Robinson, the AF 1 features the exact same color scheme, with a summit white leather upper and hyper royal accents across the Swoosh and sockliner. The word "Force" is also written in the same retro font as the '90s model, while picante red accents make this tribute colorway even better. To round it all off, the Air midsole underfoot is dipped in a coconut milk hue, giving off some very vintage vibes.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low Command Force Summit White Hyper Royal W is set to release on January 18th, 2023, exclusively in women's sizes for $130. Expected to drop at Nike, the SNKRS app, and select online and in-store retailers, make sure you keep it locked on Sole Retriever's Twitter and Mobile App for your best chance to cop!
