Nike’s Air Force 1 Arrives in a “Reverse Panda” Colourway
The so-called ‘Mid Agenda’ has crept over to the Nike Air Force 1, and to be completely honest, there’s little reason to call foul on the movement. Especially if strong colourways like the one above keep coming out. This two-toned pair may look like just another pair of white and black Uptowns, but there’s more than meets the eye.
Good leather is always worth noticing, and this pair’s white overlays on the toe bumper, eye stays, heel counter and ankle strap appear to be particularly nicely tumbled. The contrasting black on the toe box, mid panel and ankle collar trim looks standard fare, but that’ll be hiding in the darkness. Beyond that the Swoosh and ankle tab exhibit the uncommon edge finish known as pinking, seen via the jagged cuts. This quirky detail is just enough to keep things interesting, since the remainder of the colourway is all white. The insoles appear to read ‘Air Force Every…’ – it’ll be interesting to discover what the remainder of the text says. In any case, some online commentary is already nicknaming these the ‘Reverse Panda’ – more enlightened sneakerheads will instead draw parallels to the infamous Rick Owens ‘Dunks’.
Find these Nike Air Force 1 Mids in coming months at all good retailers.
