Celebrating 40 years of the Air Force 1.
The Nike Air Force 1 Mid React has got to be one of the hottest hybrids that the sneaker world has ever seen. Taking Bruce Kilgore's basketball classic and firing it straight into the distant future, the classic-meets-contemporary aesthetic is unlike anything we've seen before. This year, the AF1 is celebrating its 40th birthday, and to commemorate this momentous milestone, the Beaverton brand has been releasing a ton of special edition colorways such as the Nike Air Force 1 Mid React "White Black Yellow Ochre."
This Air Force 1 acts as the bridge between the past and the future. While the front of the sneaker features the same design that we've come to love over the past four decades, the back drops the leather construction in favor of a ripstop and nylon combination. A Velcro-fastened strap embraces the heel alongside an oversized pull tab, and underneath this all, you'll find the Air React midsole that has got everyone talking. Of course, you can't have a conversation about this AF1 without mentioning all of the luxe gold hardware that's peppered throughout. From the laser etched dubrae to the metallic top eyelets, you'll also find the year "82" printed on the insoles as nod to the year that Kilgore brought this silhouette to life.
The Nike Air Force 1 Mid React White Black Yellow Ochre will release this Holiday 2022 in men's sizes for $150. Expected to drop at Nike, the SNKRS app, and a select few retailers online and in physical locations, you definitely don't want to miss out on this release.
