One of the Swoosh’s most esteemed silhouettes nods to its beloved outdoor subdivision.

Nike has brought two sub-labels together in clever fashion on a new Air Force 1 by combining Nike Sportswear stylings with Nike ACG-inspired materials and colors. Presenting a color scheme and light-hearted ethos that looks towards ACG’s quirky beginnings in the early ’90s more than the serious, highly technical nature it took on under ACRONYM head Errolson Hugh in the mid 2010s, this Force was designed with both the city and the backcountry in mind.

Street and sport are saluted in equal measures with the shoe’s tonal mix of materials. Suede is present on the forefoot and midfoot while technical ripstop is utilized for the heel. This simple-yet-clever salute is then quickly equipped with signature ACG pastel hues: Swooshes are dressed in light pink, heels in purple/orange, tongue badges in orange/pink and even the black laces are interwoven with pink flecks. Both tongue and heel also feature cheeky twists on their respective branding, with warped, wavy Swooshes and text graphics for a free-flowing look.

Black midsoles and outsoles complete the shoe itself, but the true finishing touch is provided by the hangtag. This is provided by a grinning, bearded cartoon hiker with a sizable rucksack who’s proudly sporting a pair of Air Force 1s and an outfit that matches the shoe’s color scheme. This original detail will be replicated on other forthcoming silhouettes in the pack like the React Element 55, and perfectly encapsulates ACG’s keen-yet-kind attention to detail.

The Nike Air Force 1 “ACG” will be available at retailers like atmos on January 11 for ¥11,000 JPY (approximately $100 USD).
