Looking like it’s straight out of the aughts, the sneaker combines a plethora of “Teal Green,” “Cyan Blue” and “Topaz Gold” tones with more muted “Smoke Grey” shades, all of which are presented in patent leather. UNDEFEATED’s Five Strike logo is debossed into the lateral heel, present on the tongue tag and printed on the insoles among a collage of Air Force 1s, while special lace deubres and off-white midsoles round off the look. To accompany the sneaker’s release, UNDEFEATED and Nike have also teamed up with Feed the Streets LA and the Compton Community Garden for programs in support of Los Angeles’ sizable homeless population, offering weekly donations and interview prep courses as well as hosting volunteer gardening sessions.
Expect the UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Force 1 “Community” to touch down on the UNDEFEATED webstore and at the retailer’s brick-and-mortar boutiques on November 13. The collection’s other colorways will follow in the coming weeks, though there’s currently no word on if they’ll be region-exclusive as well.
