Nike has just offered a brand new spin on its Air Force 1-Type. Part of the footwear giant’s N. 354 subline, the new colorway is dubbed “Experimental Sail” and features uppers that are entirely covered in foam.

Starting at the top of the shoe are two ripstop pull tabs, at the heel and tongue, complemented by a set of drawcords and laces around the forefoot. Besides these details, all of the shoes are covered in spongy “Sail”-toned foam inspired by oxygen masks used in Nike’s research lab — rest assured you can still distinguish each panel on the shoe. “N. 354” branding is thinly etched over the shoe’s side Swoosh, while a fluorescent patch label is placed at the lower heel. All of these features rest over a crisp white midsole, underscored by an icy semi-translucent outsole.

Though no official release dates have been confirmed, Nike’s Air Force 1-Type N. 354 “Experimental” is expected to drop in the coming months on Nike’s website for $110 USD.

In case you missed it, here’s a look at a striking two-tone “Hyper Cobalt” iteration of Nike’s Dunk Low.
