Nike Sportswear is paying homage to the process behind the product with new Air Force 1 Low and Blazer Mid “Sketch” makeups. Continuing the WIP ethos espoused on 2019’s Tinker Hatfield-inspired Air Max 1 “Sketch to Shelf,” this duo of Nike classics present familiar styles but equip them with perfectly imperfect details.

Dressed in white leather, both the low-cut Air Force 1 and mid-top Blazer opt to use a rich black for an accenting shade to ensure maximum contrast. Each silhouette’s midfoot Swoosh is in its normal spot, but is printed on in a hand-scrawled fashion that tapers off towards the graphic’s rearmost point. “Nike” is outlined in black on both heels, slightly rubbed away at the bottom for a DIY air. Tongues also equip small hand-drawn graphics.

Despite noticeable similarities in construction and composition, each silhouette also proffers some unique accents. The AF1’s hidden heel cushioning unit is made visible in a figurative sense, drawn directly over the standard “Air” branding. Small “Air Force 1” and “1982” text pops on the upper nod to the year of its genesis as well. Meanwhile, the Blazer offers small Swooshes on the heel, “1977” scribbles on the forefoot and a clever midsole graphic.

The Nike Air Force 1 and Blazer “Sketch” are set to release in the coming weeks at retailers like Noir Fonce, with the former priced at $110 USD while the latter arrives at $100 USD.

For more Blazer news, take a look at the Blazer Mid “Light Patina” and “Dark Patina,” each equipped with butter-soft leather.
