Updated outdoor utility editions of sneaks seem to be the in thing right now. The resurgence of Nike’s ACG line, along with sneakerboots, the growth of the SF-AF1 and this “Utility” edition of the Air Force 1 are all in vogue right now, and it’s popularity doesn’t seem to be fading any time soon.
In fact, it’s brighter than ever. Literally.
This high-vis colorway for the updated uptown shows its ruggedness, whilst still managing to keep its ties to it’s 1982 parent. The addition of heel tabs and mini Swooshes on the in step and outer toe give this sneaker just enough point of difference to make a difference.
The Air Force 1 silhouette is back with a crisp new yellow colourway. This Nike Air Force 1 LV8 Utility yellow features a textured leather upper that is accented with a black, smooth leather Swoosh and label tag to the side.
At the forefoot you find a smaller, embroidered, Swoosh before moving across to the perforated toe to help ventilate the shoe. The foam midsole encapsulates Air cushioning along the full length of the trainer and finishes off with “Air” branding.
