Nike’s classic basketball shoe, the Air Force 1, has been subject to some quirky material updates of late, earlier this year with we saw Foamposite technology utilised and even a duck boot make over that attempted to take this basketball classic in to the realm of menswear. This time, it’s Hyperfuse technology that gets worked in to the AF1.
The stitch-less construction on the upper gives the shoe a composite look and feel, also providing a slimmer profile that gives this originally chunky silhouette, a refreshing makeover. All the main characteristic touches found on the AF1’s are in place on this release such as the lace jewel, strap and branding. The mesh intertwined on the composite upper should also help with the weight of the shoe, basically providing a lighter and modern alternative to the original AF1.
