When designing new sneaker colorways, Nike‘s band of innovative designers will often pander towards its retro catalog for inspiration. And with 2022 marking the 40th anniversary of the famed Air Force 1, Nike has opted to produce various colorways that draw inspiration from the Air Command Force — a classic basketball sneaker that was originally introduced in 1991. Last month we saw a colorway inspired by the OG Nike Air Command Force “Ultramarine” emerge, and now we’re learning of another iteration that takes a more muted approach.

Air Command Force elements are pronounced through the pair’s branded hits. Instead of the traditional Nike Air embellishments, oversized Force lettering styles up the tongues, insoles and heels in bold, black font. The kicks’ palette leans to the more neutral side of the spectrum. Leather base layers are mostly drenched in white while the Swooshes and interior liners are done up in a stark black hue. Lace dubraes are fitted in black and feature tonal Force lettering while the tiny Swooshes along the toe boxes also come covered with a stealthy outer. Creamy laces and midsole pieces are formed with creamy exteriors to add a vintage feel.

The gallery above shows off the shoes’ official images. At this time, a release date is unknown.
