There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that Bruce Kilgore’s Nike Air Force 1 is one of the most iconic sneakers in history. As we celebrate its 40th birthday this year, the Beaverton brand has been releasing a bevy of must-own colorways, including the upcoming Nike Air Force 1 Low "Sail Gorge Green," that’s just oozing with vintage vibes from heel to toe.
If you rocked these, most sneakerheads would probably think that you pulled these straight out of the archives. Specifically designed to look pre-aged, while the leather upper is done up in a crisp sail, the rich gorge green accents give these Forces an extremely old-school look. As if that wasn’t enough, the flat laces are dipped in pearl white for a retro aesthetic, and of course, you can’t talk about this AF1 without mentioning the Air midsole that’s done up completely in sesame. If you’ve seen a pair of old Nike sneakers on Instagram or in real life, you’d know that the midsoles transform into this exact hue after a few decades, so it’s cool that the Oregon footwear company is totally embracing this look with this release.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low Sail Gorge Green W is set to release in Holiday 2022. It will drop at Nike and at select retailers worldwide, both online and in-store. Coming in women's sizing, retail is set at $120. Keep it locked to our Twitter andMobile App to stay up to date on future releases.
