As sponsors of the NBA, Nike has maximized this relationship through the output of collaborative footwear colorways, most of which have been entailed the classic Air Force 1. To further build upon this partnership, the two entities have reconvened for this NBA x Nike Air Force 1 High “White/University Gold” makeup.

The beauty is in the details here. Its design starts out with tumbled leather and mesh materials that are responsible for building out its base layer, the former composing the side walls and toe boxes while the latter makes up the throat. The bigger-sized Swooshes only arrive on the lateral side, and come decorated with half circle metallic silver plates that are bolted down onto the lower part of the check. A yellow triangle overlay fastens itself to the lower lateral heel, while the back end’s Nike patch stands out with a white square backdrop. More branding arrives via NBA logos and an angelic Nike check on the strap, in addition to the tiny Swooshes embroidered just before the toe boxes. Moving southbound, the midsoles are lent more white outers, and come arranged with gum bottoms down below.

This NBA x Nike Air Force 1 High “White/University Gold” is available now via Nike for $110 USD.
