It takes some very special colorways like last year’s “Wheat/Flax” edition for people to really take notice of the silhouette. This new pair may get some shine this Fall as it features a Squadron Blue suede with Metallic Armory Navy leather overlays. The materials look pretty nice on this specific pair of Air Forces thanks to these official images from Nike. The ankle strap has also been done in Metallic Armory Navy leather as well as the inner liner.
What are your thoughts on the Air Force 1 Mid? Do you plan on picking up this colorway for the Fall?
There’s such thing as too much blue on a sneaker. I think the shoe would have looked better if Nike would have decided on one shade of blue and one material and covered the entire shoe in it. An all navy leather pair would have been nice.
