The Air Force 1 receives yet another makeover: the AF1 Utility swaps the expected lacing system for a ballistic nylon strap accompanied by a magnetic buckle closure for easier entry and exit. The upper comes constructed with a soft tumbled leather, all while resting atop a translucent sail-colored outsole. Similar to the SF-AF1, industrial branding is found on the tongue, with a large Swoosh insignia on the aforementioned straps with a look set for fashion over performance.

The Nike Air Force 1 Utility arrives on October 5 for $145 USD at select Nike Sportswear retailers, Nike.com and Nike SNKRS. In related Nike news, you can take a look at the returning Air Foamposite One “Habanero Red.”
