Nike’s celebration in honor of the 40th Anniversary of the Air Force 1 has been well received, dropping classic colorways, new looks, and collabs alike throughout 2022. With this, a resurgence of AF1 Mid colorways staying true to The Swoosh’s push of the silhouette as a whole has been seen. Though not a collaboration or classic colorway, this Nike Air Force 1 Mid gets a suede-covered makeover with a lavender “Venice” shade.
As previously mentioned, the silhouette gets entirely covered in a shorthair suede across its upper overlays and underlays. A tonal shade of lavender, which Nike is dubbing “Venice,” gets plastered throughout, sans the set of flat laces and Nike Swoosh. Keeping true to the model, the strap across the Venice colored collar gets the suede treatment, as well as the plastic buckle around the collar, keeping things within this tonal shade. The sockliner does break up the almost-monochromatic look by opting for a white mesh, accented by yet another hit of the lavender shade on the insole. Rounding out the look is the summit white midsole with “Air” branding on the heel paired with a Venice rubber outsole.
The Nike Air Force 1 Mid Venice is set to drop on June 9th, 2022 through Nike and select NSW retailers online and in-store. Coming in men's sizing, the retail price is set at $150.
