In the greater lexicon of Nike, there’s arguably no shoe more quintessential than a white Air Force 1 — and now that paradigm of footwear culture has been elevated by way of the Air Force 1 Craft. Arriving in a masterfully muted white and grey that’s officially titled “Summit White/Photon Dust,” the Craft eschews the monochromatic makeup of its potent predecessor but uses clean colorblocking and premium materials to provide a luxurious take on a Nike Sportswear classic.

The “Craft” is centered around a simple-yet-effective mix of white leather and grey suedes. This traditional combo is one of the footwear world’s current darlings, thanks to hyped silhouettes like the Dior x Air Jordan 1 and fawning Instagram archive pages who can’t seem to get enough of the toned-down retro look it provides. From a material standpoint it mixes a supple white leather upper with grey suede Swooshes. In OG Air Force 1 fashion, collars offer an extra dose of plush padding. Heel tabs proffer a chevron-like grey suede pattern with a delicately-pinned leather tag hanging from their lowermost regions. Swoosh-equipped tongue tags, white midsoles and grey outsoles finalize the look.

This white and grey Air Force 1 Craft is available now at atmos, and retails for ¥13,000 JPY (approximately $121 USD). More styles of the Craft are set to release in the coming weeks as well.

Looking for original retro sneakers? Christies and Stadium Goods are auctioning off a pair of OG white/red Air Ships worn by Michael Jordan himself.
