With the new Air Force 1 Craft, Nike has been focusing on premium materials, elevated detailing and crisp color schemes, in short taking a deep dive into the AF1’s ever-present air of luxury. This has produced a handful of appealing, elegant styles like “Ridgerock” and “White/Obsidian,” and the latest effort — a sharp “Mantra Orange” — retains this ethos fully but adds a small dash of Nike Sportswear flair as well.

Tumbled leather uppers take on a “Sail” hue and are quickly accented by rich “Mantra Orange” Swooshes and heel tabs, done up in suede for a material contrast. Unlike in-line Air Force 1 Lows, this heel tab is completely devoid of branding. However, hanging down below it is a small orange suede tag with a forest green Air Force 1 hit. This Miami Hurricanes-esque mixture of orange and green returns on the fabric tongue tag for some front-facing flair, and a final upper detail is provided by the aged lace deubres with more alternate AF1 graphics. Down below, sail midsoles and outsoles complete the look.

The Nike Air Force 1 Craft “Mantra Orange” is set to release via Nike SNKRS on January 6. MSRP is set at $120 USD.
