Known for being waterproof and breathable, Gore-Tex is the perfect material to build a seasonal sneaker. This is the choice to construct Nike’s latest hefty retooling of the Air Force 1.
Beyond its waterproof construction, the sneaker is made traction treks on a toothy sole. In this case, the sneaker is riding on an icy sole, paired with a creamy white upper.
Part lifestyle sneaker, part military boot, the Air Force 1 WTR Gore-Tex suits up for the harsher winter conditions as part of Nike’s ongoing series, “The 10th,” a collection that pays homage to Bill Bowerman’s service in the Army. This newest phantom white edition is equipped against rain, sleet, and snow with a nylon zipper bootie and a water-resistant Gore-Tex membrane all under an icy swoosh. With Gore-Tex branding on the heel, “Air” on the midsole, and “The 10th” patched on the bootie, the latest shows off a beyond suitable collaboration for fighting the elements.
