Although all-white Air Force 1s are a quintessential summer footwear choice, sometimes sneaker aficionados want to brighten things up a touch. For Summer 2020, Nike Sportswear is giving those AF1 devotees a chance to do just that with a brand-new Air Force 1 Low “Black Tie-Dye.” Swathed in splattered tie-dye embellishments and using bright contrasting tones, these Nike shoes supply striking solstice style.
Tumbled white leather serves as a canvas on the upper, with accents provided by a light peach-colored mudguard plus bright green Swooshes and heel tabs. This entire assemblage is then quickly doused in a vivid tie-dye print, consisting of elongated black, red and orange splotches that reach from heel to toe. Black laces and black branding on heel and tongue alike tie the upper half together. Down below, classic white midsoles and black outsoles round off the DIY-inspired look.
The Nike Air Force 1 “Black Tie-Dye” is set to release at Nike SNKRS Korea on July 1. It’s priced at ₩ 139,000 KRW (approximately $116 USD). Although it is a women’s style, an extended size run ensures it’ll be accessible to male sneaker lovers as well.
