Nike Sportswear has taken a deep dive into its archives to bring out the Sky Force 3/4 in “White/Black.” First released in 1983, this elegant three-quarter iteration of the Sky Force last saw the spotlight in 2018 as part of an exclusive “Game Worn” collaboration with artist Ju Working On Projects, only available at Chicago’s Notre. Now, it’s set for a mass-market return that’ll be kicked off by a ultra-clean colorway.
Mid-cut uppers are dressed almost entirely in white tumbled leather, with an elongated Swoosh and a T-shaped midfoot overlay/eyestay piece serving as the most interesting details. Contrast is provided by black trim around the fabric collar, a black Nike spellout graphic on the heel and a swoosh-plus-text hit on the fabric tongue tag. White rubber midsoles are slim and sleek, while the look is completed by a milky, semi-translucent outsole for a dash of flair.
The Nike Sky Force 3/4 “White/Black” is available on the Nike webstore now, and retails for an extremely equitable $85 USD. More styles are likely to follow in the coming months as well.
