Nike's 6-Inch SFB Returns in Canvas for 2016 Fall/Winter

The Swoosh’s Free-equipped military boots make a comeback.

By //Footwear

Thanks to Bill Bowerman’s stint in the military, Nike has been putting out Special Field Boots for years as a nod to its founder’s service in the 10th Mountain Division during World War II. Last year, for example, the design got a sharp patent leather upgrade from NikeLab and was even tapped by ACRONYM’s Errolson Hugh for a Flyknit-clad ACG drop. This fall will see yet another return to form for the mid-top version of the design as NSW brings back the SFB 6” for Fall/Winter 2016.

This time around, the boot gets some subtle tweaks to differentiate it from past editions. While the design’s rugged Free-inspired sole unit remains intact (in this case as a stark white contrast), the upper has been reworked a bit, ditching its usual construction in favor of more comfortable unstructured canvas while premium leather on the tongue gives a premium edge. Even the branding badges are new while the addition of pull tabs at the heel makes slipping the kicks on and off a bit easier.

Expect both black and “Golden Beige” colorways of the boot to turn up at NSW spots like Tokyo’s atmos in the coming weeks.
