Nike SB is ready to move on from the “Foamposite” rework spotted earlier this summer and is preparing now to drop a popular fall-friendly iteration of its signature Air Force 2 Low silhouette. A “Premium Wheat” suede fabrication swarms the upper with decorative perforations hitting both the medial and later sides, as well as the toe area. Material contrast makes its presence felt on the solid heel overlay/eyelets, as well as on the leather Swooshes hitting both sides, while subtle color deviation shows up in the dark brown inner lining and heel counter.

Other notable features include the rugged boot-style laces and the matching-hued gum rubber sole unit. Although price and release date still have yet to be confirmed, this new Nike SB Air Force 2 Low will make its way to select retailers sometime this fall.
