Similar to previous iterations, the upcoming pairs subtly pay homage to the German capital through its color scheme and branding accents. As Berlin is informally known as the “Grey City” for the granite finish on most of its buildings and notoriously cloudy skies in autumn and winter, a “Cave Stone” finish is applied to the tumbled leather uppers and midsoles.
Black hues are featured on the laces and suede overlays, a potential nod towards the black bear on the city flag and the city’s renowned nightlife, and White tones are featured on the lateral swooshes, heel tab, and tongue tag. Metallic lace duebrés stylized ed in the form of the city’s street signs and “030” area code embroidery in Teal complete the upcoming pairs.
Take a look at the official photos above, and expect the Nike Air Force 1 Mid “Berlin” to arrive in the coming weeks at Nike’s website and select retailers for $130 USD.
Elsewhere in footwear, this NBA x WNBA Nike Dunk High is built to resemble a basketball.
