Following the Air Jordan 4 “Sashiko” release last November, Nike is back with a classic silhouette featuring the traditional Japanese embroidery. This time around, the Air Force 1 is dressed in multiple Sashiko patterns alongside varying indigo dyes across the uppers.

Contrasting its predecessors like the SB Blazer and SB Dunk Low, the perennial low-top features a more elevated composition when it comes to its overlays and panels. The sneaker features weave patterning coupled with textural crosshatches in black and blue tones across the mid section. Balancing the makeup are neutral tones in the top and low portions such as the laces, Swoosh insignias and midsoles adorned in white.

Get a good look at the Air Force 1 “Sashiko” in the slideshow above and expect a release soon on Nike’s online store and select retailers.
