Nike Sportswear has brought premium animal print Swooshes to its two latest iterations of the Air Force 1: “White/Midnight Turquoise” and “White/Club Gold.” With the crisp base that’s made the Force a Nike lifestyle favorite for decades and luxurious embellishments, both of these uniquely-checked AF1s offer sublime summertime style.
Both pairs use their Swooshes for contrast, but do it in a different fashion. “Midnight Turquoise” serves up a dark, blotchy cow print on the right lateral and left medial sides with shimmering blue snakeskin coming to the right medial and left lateral panels. On the other end of the spectrum, “Club Gold” goes for croc on left lateral and right medial, then adds cow fur to right lateral and left medial. Unintentionally or otherwise, both of these make for a predator and prey setup, an ethos rooted in atmos‘s famous “Animal Pack” Air Maxes.
A final difference arrives via the heel and tongue branding — “Midnight Turquoise” stays tonal while “Club Gold” adds more secondary color. White rubber midsoles and outsoles round off both styles.
