To go along with its recent cork-inspired silhouettes, Nike is also set to drop an Air Force 1 Low “Catechu.” Following the same theme of plants, this upcoming AF1 Low spotlights catechu, which is an extract of acacia trees and can be used in several different ways such as food additives, astringent, tannin, and dye.
The Nike Air Force 1 Low “Catechu” sports a “White” and “Light Sienna” color palette on its canvas upper, while hits of contrasting “Pink” arrive on the tongue tab, heel overlay, and on the Swoosh insignias. Spotlighted on the right heel is embroidered facts about the plant, while the actual plant is seen on the lateral wall. Rounding out the final design cues is a cork stripe on the heels, a white midsole, and a “Dark Cinder” rubber outsole.
Look for the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Catechu” to arrive in the upcoming weeks at select retailers and Nike.com for $110.
