Nike is known to dish out a vast array of themed footwear collections every year, and one of the first to be spotlighted this month is this “World Tour” Pack. The two-pronged assemblage is inclusive of two classic basketball silhouettes such as the Air Force 1 Low and Blazer Mid ‘77, both of which encourage you to get after it and “move your body”.

Let’s dive right into the design aspects of each take. The Air Force 1 Low is definitely the more eye-catching variant of the duo as it is styled with louder exteriors, the leathers that form its upper base being glazed with a “Fireberry” tone throughout. Accents of “Turf Orange” and “Light Liquid Lime” play supporting roles, the former of which swathes the Swooshes while the latter is shown through the Nike branding on the tongues and heels, exposed stitches that border the Swooshes, and the phrases “Move Your Body and “Move Your Sole” phrasing that splits between the lateral rear ends of each foot.

Now, let’s lob the attention over to the Blazer Mid ‘77 sibling. Understated in look, this installment selects to go with the traditional two-toned color-blocking by crafting its white leather upper in white, and balancing out its accents with “Fireberry” skins to the Swooshes and heel panels. “Light Liquid Lime” are also present, but used sparingly atop the backside’s “World Tour” lettering. Furthermore, the usual forefoot suede overlays and midsoles stick to the original design cues with grey and white coatings.

Both pairs are available through Nike here and here, each of which retail for $120 USD.
