This year marks the 40th birthday of the Nike Air Force 1. Its origins began on the basketball court back in 1982 but quickly became a staple in global hip-hop culture. As the celebratory year continues, Nike has prepared several festive releases to honor the iconic silhouette. The latest release to join the line-up is the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Bronx Origins,” which pays tribute to the borough’s musical legacy.

Soaked in historical notions, the upper is constructed from tumbled white leather, featuring distinctive black medial Swooshes with a scored finish. Gilded lace dubraes see embossed detailing promoting the years “1973” and “1982,” the latter signifying the model’s debut. Rear pull-tabs don illustrative branding, while tongue tags see “Anniversary Edition” text in sophisticated cursive lettering. Graphic insoles are printed with a spinning “Bronx Origins” vinyl record, completing the design with white midsoles and milky semi-translucent bottoms that allow the same phrase to peek through.

The Nike Air Force 1 Low “Bronx Origins” is set to hit shelves on October 14 via Nike and select retailers for $150 USD.

Elsewhere in footwear, here’s how to get your hands on HAL STUDIOS®’s ASICS GEL-1130 “FOREST” collaboration.
