Nike is about to drop a shiny, exotic tribute to the Air Force 1. While this high-top AF1 retains its original construction in white leather with white laces and sole, the model’s Deep Pewter/White-Porpoise colorway sheaths the sneaker in a bold, iridescent patent leather Swoosh logo, branded heel tab and woven tongue patch, with matching lace dubraes. Nike has released some rather courageous silhouettes with the shiny material in the past, but there hasn’t been any recent footwear from the company that’s flaunted this lustrous rainbow quality in a more understated way.

Watch for announcements of an upcoming release date and price for the “Iridescent” edition of the Nike Air Force 1 Hi LV8. For more iridescent fun, check out the Flyknit Trainer Chukka FSB.
