Although a famed adage states “April showers bring May flowers,” Nike Sportswear has decided to get ahead of the game by dropping a daisy-equipped iteration of the Air Force 1. Offering a crisp and vibrant color scheme with an interesting material construction, these floral Forces nod to the blooms and colors of the spring months.
Fresh white uppers are split between smooth leather and soft textiles — the former on toeboxes and quarters, the latter on mudguards and heels. The main details arrive via a daisy print present under the see-through midfoot Swooshes and a single daisy plus a cursive Nike text graphic placed on the black satin heel. Extra flourishes arrive via a yellow tongue tag and yellow-flecked laces.
If you look into the insole, you’ll see the floral stylings continue thanks to a final stamped flower towards the heel. Down below, a white midsole and black outsole complete the look.
This Nike Air Force 1 is available now on the Nike webstore, and retails for $110 USD.
