While Nike’s iconic Air Force 1 design has seen any number of colorways in its 33-year lifespan, the construction of the shoe has largely stuck to the traditional materials of leather and suede.

This newest model to surface only puts more momentum behind the trend, with a mottled purple Flyknit upper adored with a black leather Swoosh and ankle strap. Meanwhile, a classic white Air sole unit anchors the sneaker firmly in its heritage. Look for the Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit “Purple” to hit select retailers in early 2016.
