While hybrids designs incorporating the physical characteristics of popular sneakers has taken some time to become respected practice amongst sneaker brands, Nike has taken another slightly off beat approach. They’ve looked to a much heralded running line which never mind the performance aspect has yielded some of the most aesthetically pleasing colorways throughout the sneaker world. Some of Nike’s most resonating and re-referenced styles over the years would make a return, not as a retro but reincarnated through Nike’s most popular style ever the Air Force 1. The styles look at three distinct categories of performance styles. These categories include ground-breaking use of materials in the Safari, Spiridon and Talaria. The functionality of the ACG collection, the Mowabb and the Wildwood and finally rounding out with an Air Max series devoted to the OG colors of the Air Max 90, Air Max 95 and Air Max 97. Watch for these to hit select Air Force 1 dealers this summer.
