The Patriots and its owner, Robert Kraft, are getting yet another Nike Air Force 1. Robert Kraft is a known fan of the Bruce Kilgore-designed model and as such the Patriots have received an AF 1 each season for quite some time. Like last year, the Patriots edition of the AF 1 will be on the Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Low.
Departing from the darker College Navy that covered last years Patriots Air Force 1, 2023's will feature a brighter hue. Game Royal blue covers the sneaker's Flyknit upper. Embroidered atop the Game Royal knit on the “vamp” is a set of six stars, representing the six Super Bowl victories in the franchise's history. Kraft himself gets a few nods with the lace dubrae and tongue tag featuring his initials “RKK” while the Patriots logo is located on the insole and back on the heel tab. Working along the midfoot a black Jewel Nike Swoosh that come in black matching the "mini Swoosh" embroidered near the toe box. The entire design is finished off through a rubber AF1 midsole and outsole combo that comes primarily in white with navy hits on the toe and heel.
