Arguably in the best shape it has ever been, the Nike Air Force 1 lends itself to the look of luxury with the recently-released “Red Paisley” colorway. The vegetable droplet shape in laser-etched into the university red nubuck upper, as yellow laces highlight the shoe down the middle. From there, black inserts itself into the equation, showing up on the tongue, gradient Swoosh and chunky midsole. The “Paisley” Air Force 1 is now available at Rock City Kicks for $100.

Nike outfits its Uptowns with a preppy vibe with the emergence of the Air Force 1 “Seersucker” Pack. Fittingly set for the summer, the trio of colorways sport stripes on lightweight fabric, seen utilized differently on each model. Seersucker shows up on the majority of the grey pair, as it’s relegated to the inner lining on the black, then reserved for the Swoosh and eyestay on the red. All three pairs of “Seersucker” Air Force 1 are now available at atmos for ¥9,500 (~$93).
Nike’s timeless AF1 is being celebrated with bottle-popping “Cork” iD options, now available to the general public.

Hit up NIKEiD now to check out all of the “Cork” tools now at your disposal.
For a sneaker named the “Air Force 1,” you can never have too many military-themed versions. Sporting a Downtown-esque AC look, the kick from ’82 opts for a “Navy” vibe, presented in a duo pack. With each sneaker switching out the traditional sole in favor of a vulcanized one, canvas covers the uppers of both kicks, with blue anchors adorning the grey option and stark white taking over the other. Peep the “Navy” Pack in the detailed photos below and you can expect this Air Force 1 tandem to release March 28 at midnight GMT for £75 (~$125) each.
Set to release on Saturday, March 22, the Nike Air Force 1 “Black Denim” features a classic look on a timeless silhouette.

Catch a Live Look at these kicks in the video above, and let us know if you plan to cop when they drop for $100.
Riccardo Tisci’s love for design and sneakers runs deep, so it’s no surprise that Nike enlisted his services to remix the tried-and-true Nike Air Force 1. Since being spotted two months ago, the collaboration has been making its rounds on the runway circuit, as well as on the feet of the well-connected. This Friday, the white half of the collection will hit the streets, landing in New York (151 Wooster, 21 Mercer & Dover Street Market New York), London (1948, Dover Street Market London) Milan (Nike Stadium Milano), Tokyo (Dover Street Market Ginza), and Shanghai (Nike X158), in addition to other select retailers worldwide.
