With the likes of Carhartt and Travis Scott reworking Nike‘s venerable Air Force 1, the still-relevant 35-year old silhouette remains as popular as ever. To confirm the necessity of the shoe, Nike is getting in on the remix action, debuting a bold “Patchwork” take on the beefy basketball shoe, contrasting black-and-white patterns against muted grain leather.

A conventional Air Force 1 toebox is contrasted against oversized houndstooth and stripe patterns on each Swoosh, with slim vertical white stripes and Glen check panels towards the rear of the sneaker. The white Nike heel branding is nearly lost against the clashing designs that surround it. A muted midsole offers quiet balance to the loud upper, while mismatched insoles create a hidden compliment to the dramatic accents.

No release date for the “Patchwork Air Force 1 Low has emerged yet, but stay tuned for news.

Elsewhere, the Air Force 1 Mid appeared with a “Terra Orange” outline.
